Everyone knows that Apple’s Support site is quite expansive. So much so, that sometimes the really good help is buried so deep you never find it. I believe the information in this article is one of those cases.
Here is that link
….so that everyone can read about the added options for migrating data to their new MacBooks (purchased at Smalldog.com, of course).
The article details how it’s possible to migrate your existing user data over a network connection instead of just via a Firewire cable from your old Mac in Target Disk Mode.
Here’s the summary information for this Apple technical article;
“FireWire connections are still the fastest way to migrate applications and data from an older computer to your new computer, however, these new models now offer the ability to perform a system migration over network connections. This gives you more choices and flexibility in migrating your applications and data.”
Knowledge is power!!
