    I'm excited to get a new 2.3 ghz 17 inch MBP next week. I have Time Machine backups on my current 10.6 Macbook on a USB HD, so is moving my settings and applications as simple as running a time machine on the new MBP? I know the MBP will have 10.7.

    Yep, you can choose to restore from a TM backup when setting up your MBP for the first time.

    Awesome, thanks quinoky. Another question if I may. Does anyone run VMware fusion VM's off a USB 2.0 external HD with decent performance?
