I'm expecting my new iMac soon and was wondering what the best way to transfer all my files and programs and prefs from my mid-2009 24" machine. I know there are several ways and was just wondering what people have done when they got new machines. I also have 6 external hard drives (1-USB 2.0 & 2-Firewire 800 & 3-USB 3.0 capable) and was wondering if this complicates matters. I'm running Mavericks and have the thunderbolt to Firewire adapter ready and also a USB 3.0 hub. I also wondered if any of my devices (also a USB printer and 2 external Optical drives cannot be used on a hub. I sure wish there were more USB ports! ALSO I was wondering if the mini-display to HDMI adapter I was using can be used as a Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter to hook up a second monitor.
