I'm about to pick up a new iMac running Mountain Lion. My current computer is running Leopard (10.5.8). I wish to migrate my files and settings to the new computer.

 

My questions are:

 

Which is best - using setup assistant to migrate files directly from my old iMac or from a Time Machine backup? (I assume if the latter the most recent backup will be the source of the migration.)

 

My current computer is set up with two accounts with different passwords. Will the passwords for the accounts and the admin password be transferred to the new computer so there are no issues with logging in?

 

Are there any potential issues I should be aware of?

 

Thanks in anticipation.
