Hello, I have just taken delivery of a brand new MacBook Air to replace my aging MacBook. The problem is that the MacBook is on OS X Lion and the MacBook Air is Mountain Lion. So I assume I can't just restore from time machine, or copy direct from the old laptop? I could use superduper, but then I'd downgrade my Air to Lion. I don't really want to pay to upgrade my old laptop to Mountain Lion. How can I easily transfer my data and applications to my new laptop?





MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
