I had a Macbook Pro that was dying so I did a last minute backup using TimeMachine and a good external hard drive.  Got it. 


Now I have an iMac with the same specs but a smaller hard drive.  And in the time between the dead MBP and me getting this iMac I've decided that I don't want all the junk from my MBP.  So I've transferred what I do want: the documents, software, settings from itunes and prefs from various web browsers over and am pretty happy except that I can't run

  1. Microsoft Office
  2. Calendar
  3. Address book


I've done full restores in the past and they've worked perfectly.  Never a problem.  But the nickel and dime approach I've taken now doesn't totally work.  Obviously I've missed something.  Can anyone advise me on what all I need to move over from the backup to my iMac to get these 3 things to work as they did in my macbook pro?


I do not have my disk for Office.


Any advice much appreciated.
