    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).

    Thanks!

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