    How can you possibly not know about Migration Assistant, Cody?! It’s an utter breeze!

      I I used it to transfer all my stuff from windows 7 to my new 27″imac
      It took a longtime but I really like it
      Just do it in the night when you are going the bed
      I used simple transfer app too for pictures and is excellent

    Well first, I have to say congratulations to Sebastien on the wonderful news of a second child on the way… that’s always great! And secondly, I would just like to direct this towards Jeff and Cody. I just received my new 2013 MacBook Pro 13″ yesterday at a 11 am and spent all day migrating and reinstalling apps. It was the first time I had ever transferred from files from one MacBook to a new one since I got my first MacBook the summer before I started college. In regards to migration, I was thinking of using migration assistant but then decided to invest in an external hard drive. I do wish I heard this podcast before I did all of this but the dust has finally settled and everything is back. Well, I’ll remember this podcast in another 4 – 5 years when I get another new computer, probably. The computer I got is equipped with the 2.6 GHz processor option, 8 GB of RAM, and the 256 SSD. I have to say, it’s an upgrade from my 2.4 GHz, 4 GB of RAM capable 2010 MacBook Pro. One needs to remember that while I don’t have the top tiered processor or 16 GB of RAM (although I do wish I had the 16 GB of RAM), the fact that the hard drive is flash based will definitely help to offload some of the computing tasks one will do on a daily basis. I have to agree with Cody though, the 15″ will definitely take on gaming MUCH better because of the dedicated graphics of Intel’s Iris Pro. But I feel that 13″ is a great compromise between the lightness and thinness, but still maintaing some pretty raw computing power. I find it be rather quick.
