    I'm currently backing up my MBP using time machine. My plan is to put MOST of it's info onto my iMac. Things like address book and itunes. Will that work?

    My main question is: I recently deleted iLife off of my iMac (i'm a newb) and I'm curious if the iLife from my MBP will transfer over to my iMac. I want all my pics off of the MBP but currently have no place to put them on the iMac.

    Is there a solution to my problem?

    If you looked at you old thread, there would be an answer from me. Shortly, yes, iLife will transfer. Just connect them with Ethernet cable and use Migration Assistant

    Thanks again.

    I hope my Apple ignorance :confused: doesn't irritate you to badly because I'm going to be asking a lot of questions the next 1-3 days.

    What if I don't have the application install disk?

    I'm screwed right?

    Nope, iLife will transfer with Migration Assistant too.

    Effin amazing! Thank you so much. I've been trying to find a way to get iLife back on my iMac for awhile now without illegally downloading or buying it.
