    Hey guys,

    I have a new 11 inch MBA (I like it, still adjusting to the smaller screen since i had a 13.3 MB before, I might switch to the 13 inch if i don't get used to the slightly smaller screen).

    Anyways, I was going to transfer all my photos/music/movies/calendars to it through my iPhone.

    That, however, does not seem to be working out because iTunes appears to still be one-way syncing?

    Anyways, Googling around for an answer only gives me two year old results and suggestions for programs. I'd rather be safe and check with you guys to see if you have any suggestions of how I can accomplish this goal?

    If you have an external HD, just make a time machine backup of your old machine and then restore from it to your new one.

    I just restored from a MBP time machine backup and my new air is literally setup just my MBP right before I sold it. The only problem for me was that my launchpad button doesn't work.
