    I am going to be getting the new iMac 27" Quad when it becomes available and I was curious as to whether or not I could migrate my Windows Vista OEM partition or am I "**** OUT OF LUCK?"

    I would hate to have to keep buying another copy of Windows every year everytime I upgrade my computer.

    Also, I would like to migrate my pro apps that I own such as Logic, FCE, Aperture without having to reinstall them, as Logic, for instance is HUGE! When I look at the Logic apps GET INFO for instance it says that the file is only 769mb in size when in reality the program is over 40GB in size. When you migrate that type of app does it search your old computer and bring all the necessary files, in this case, jam packs, etc that make up the 40gb or so in Logic?

    You're SOL because you bought an OEM version.

    For migrating your apps I suggest you look at the Mac Power Users Podcast www.macpowerusers.com episode for setting up a new Mac.
