Looking at the help pages ( http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4413 ) - am I correct in think that it's all or nothing with the applications? I either have to do them all, or none of them? There are some I'd like to migrate & some I don't really want to.

 

Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities

     

    You have to transfer all applications. Note that if you are migrating from an older OS X version, the apps that came with Mac OS X won't be modified, as they are required by Mountain Lion. Apart from that, all the applications you installed yourself will be transferred.
