    I finally bought a MacBook Pro and want to migrate some stuff from a 6 yr old Powerbook. The PB is running Tiger and has two user accounts (mine and mrs.). To confuse matters, my account has my iTunes and iPhone sync, my wife's had all our iPhoto data (very old version, ver. 4?).

    On the MBP I want to avoid this and have just one account (mine) and let the mrs/kids use it as and when on the same account.

    Can I import all this data and configurations using this program or is it easier to import everything from a backup on an external disk?

    In either case, you will be importing your entire system as it was. You'll have to make any changes after the fact.

    I'd import your old profile using the Migration Assistant and then import the things from her account like the iPhoto stuff manually afterwards.
