Can anyone tell me the best way to transfer data and settings from my old PowerPC iMac to a brand new 27in iMac. I've looked into the wi-fi option, but it's going to take over 50 hours! I'm guessing that a cable would be better, but the sockets don't match – firewire on the old machine, gigabit ethernet on the new one. Is it possible to buy that sort of cable and, if so, which brand is best?


Many thanks!



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
