    I have a Time Machine back up from a White MacBook that I sold. I started fresh when I purchased my Unibody MacBook Pro. My question is... is there anyway I can grab some of those files from the old Time Machine backup and put on my new MacBook Pro? Any advice would help. Thanks!

    You can use the Migration Assistant and select the Time Machine drive, then select the file types you'd like to move over if you're looking to move things like apps, documents, preferences, etc rather than just specific files. For specific files, there are a couple nice Time Machine browser applications out there that can make going through the backup files easier.
