I am using an Intel MacBook Pro. I will be starting a new job soon and I will have to leave this computer with my current employer. My new employer will buy me another MacBook Pro. Here's my dilemma: I have to give up the old computer before I get the new computer. Question 1: What's the best way to transfer everything from my old computer to my new computer? If only I had the new and the old computer at the same time I could easily use the Migration Assistant. On the other hand, I've done some reasearch and I've found that a .Mac account will let you do a backup, but I don't know the extent of what it will backup. Question 2: Is there any way to make a full disk image back of my whole hard drive onto an external hard drive so that when I get my new computer I can just firewire the external hard drive to my new computer and use Migration Assistant to import everything? Thanks for your help.
