    I just bought the iMac 21, which have 10.6.6 software. I want to get all my docs/infos etc from my MBP 13 to iMac, for this I will use Migration Assistant, and my external hard drive.

    My question is:
    MBP has latest software 10.6.8
    iMac has 10.6.6

    Should I update iMac before I do Migration?

    I read this

    Where is said both Macs should have latest software, but I dont like to wait o download 1.2GB.

    Let me know your thoughts experience.

    You're better off updating.

    I seem to remember having a problem before when transferring (or trying to) to an older operating system. I don't think it allows you from what I recall.

    Update, otherwise you'll get a fairly unpleasant looking boot screen every time you boot your new computer.
