    Get an external drive. Clone the MB to the drive. Boot from external drive to make sure it cloned properly. Reformat the MB. Sell the MB.

    Get the MBA. Connect the external drive. Boot MBA for the first time. Select transfer accounts and applications from external drive.

    i forgot to mention my HD is 160gb , from that 112gb used. The Air HD will be 80gb:/. Does that causes a problem?

    Can i just copy the HD icon from my desktop to an external drive?

    And the Macbook Air wont be a new one, but an used one. Can i transfer accounts and all that anyways? And how?

    Very thankful for your help!
