Question: Migration Assistant advice

I plan to use Migration Assistant using wi-fi to move all of my files from my 2011 MacBook Air to a new MacBook Pro. Any advice would be appreciated.

MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.5)

The offer to migrate your information occurs automatically after you first turn on the new MacBook Pro. That's the best time to do it, even if it takes a while.

Personally I don't choose to migrate "Computer and Network Settings" because they are easy to re-create, and I don't choose "Other files and folders" because I don't know of anything I need that could be in that category.


It might be a better idea to migrate everything you think you may need, even if you intend to delete things later.
