    My iMac just died on me, however, I had everything backed up using TimeMachine. Is it possible to restore that TimeMachine 'image' onto my Macbook as I cannot replace my iMac right now. Or would I use the migration assistant instead and choose to migrate over the old account?

    The iMac was a late 2007 model and my Macbook is the CLE version (Alu Dec 08).

    Definitely go with the Migration Assistant because your iMac hard drive doesn't have the right drivers for a laptop.
