I have Palm on my Dell. I'm moving to MacbookPro. I got my contacts to Address Book using Vcard. I don't have tons of calendar entries so used the Vcal option to move them one at a time to iCal. Now I'm down to moving Palm tasks to my Mac. In terms of hardware I only have the Dell and the Mac. In terms of S/W I don't see much on the web that will really save me a lot in moving my 100-125 tasks to the Mac. So it will probably be re-enter them one at a time.
Now the question - iCal seems to have only one place holder for what I call Tasks. That seems to be Reminders. Does anyone have any feedback, tips, etc. on doing task/reminder management using iCal?
I haven't used iCal on Lion (10.7) yet, but on earlier version Tasks were assigned to calendars, and colour-coded accordingly. You could have special calendars for eg Urgent tasks, Work tasks etc. I suspect that remains the case in Lion's iCal.
