I've read a lot on the subject but still don't know if I should use time machine's restore or the migration assistant? I just bought a slightly used iMac 24 inch 2.4 with a 1T internal drive. My old Mac is a 1.25 20 inch PPC imac (bowling ball base) that has a 150gig internal and 4 external hds. 2 usb, A 120 and a 500 and 2 fire wire 400 and 500. And to protect it all it is all backed up using time machine with a 1.82 T usb external. Both running 10.5.5. Wow what a mouthfull! So after reading a bazillion threads I still don't know if I should us time machines restore or the migration assistant? And when the restore is ready to go should the external drives (except the 1.82 T time machine backup drive)be attached to the new computer or the old? Thanks in advance for your insight on the matter!
