So my brand new MBP is arriving on Wednesday. I'm debating whether I should: keep the computer fresh and manually transfer over all of my music, photos, movies, files, applications, etc, or, do the migration assistant thing and transfer all of my settings along with everything else over at the same time. I know that doing option 1 will involve more work and be more tedious, but I'm thinking it's about time to start off with a fresh machine, as I've been migrating everything over since my first iBook in 2001. Is there really any benefit in going with option 1? Will I really notice any performance difference on the new MBP between option 1 and 2?
