Yesterday I purchased a new 15" Retina Macbook Pro to replace my current 27" iMac.  When I asked the salesperson for the best way to transfer my info over I was told to purchase a firewire cable & use Migration Assistant.  Well, I get home & open the box & my laptop doesn't have a firewire port (something I probably should have known to start, but I never really use those ports, so I didn't realize till I opened it), just usb, hdmi & thunderbolt ports.


Can someone please advise me of the best way to transfer everything over?  I started to do ti wirelessly last night & it said it was going to take over 30 hours.


Thank you!



MacBook Pro with Retina display, iOS 6.1.3
