Moving to a new iMac
Oct 22, 2012

I'm about to pension off my six-year-old 17-inch iMac, since it can't handle the latest OS, or updates of software that I use regularly. And the hard drive is almost full.

So I'll get the current 21-inch iMac. Which means that I have a question or 2.

It will come with OS and some other software already installed. I'll need to load all my other software and all my files from my Time Machine backup.

So how would I go about doing a selective download from the Time Machine disc? Or should I connect the two computers and do a direct download from one to the other?

I certainly intend to run the two in parallel until the new one is sorted.

All advice and warnings based on your experience gratefully received. And is there an old thread that deals with this? If so I can't locate it.
