My Old 2008 MacBook Pro is getting old and sluggish. It takes a bit of time to boot up (nothing dramatic) and the battery doesn't last long. But I noticed the last time I turned it on, it struggled to display the Apple Store Updates page correctly. But I'm doing more work on the road than ever before, so I think I'm going to upgrade at the end of the month when they hopefully announce a new machine. But my question is, can I back up my old MacbookPro and restore it to the new machine? I think its possible, but is it recommended? Is it better to start a fresh, and get rid of the junk computers seem to clog themselves up with? My only work is I have some software on there like Final Cut Pro 7 etc. which is impossible to get hold of now but I still get a lot of use out of it. Whats recommended? Can you do a partial backup, of say software and settings, but leave all documents and temp files where they are? And then I could just move over what I wanted. Thanks for any help.
