The wife has OK’d a laptop upgrade at Chez Kev, so I’ll soon be moving from my PowerBook G4 to a new MacBook. Although I’ve talked about a new laptop a couple of times, she was the one to suggest it it the other day. Clearly, I have the best wife in the whole world!
So, I’m currently researching OS X to OS X transfers to make sure I can pull everything I need off the PowerBook with as little trouble as possible. If anyone has done such a transfer, I’d appreciate your advice/suggestions, but here’s the resources I’m checking out so far.
My biggest concerns are (1) transferring POP email from Mail, (2) retaining my keychain, and (3) moving some third-party apps to include plist files, etc. The rest of it should go pretty smoothly, because all of my iTunes, etc live on the network.
If you have any other advice or know any good resources, please share in comments or send me a link via del.icio.us (kevincdonahue).
Wish me luck!
