I have an old iMac running OS X 10.6.8 and bought recently a Mac Book Pro running OS X 10.8.4. As my iMac is running too slow and getting old, I want to copy all its data, programs and files to my new Mac Book Pro. However, I am worried with compatibilities... How to do it? Is it possible just to move folders from one computer to the other? Or? Surely must be a way to copy all my data from the old system to the new system...


Help please...




iMac (24-inch Early 2008), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
