Question: Setting up a new iMac and closing down an old one
I've just purchased a new iMac which I am very excited about 🙂
I have a time machine backup from my existing, soon to be "old" iMac and want to know that if I use that as part of my setup whether it will bring across all of my applications e.g. MSOffice for Mac.
I also want to give my "old" iMac to my daughter so want to take all of my data off it to clear up some space. Can I do that by deleting my profile i.e. will it remove all of the files under my user name.
Finally, my new iMac does not have a CD drive but occassionaly I need to access a CD. My macbook has one so can I link across to my Macbook CD drive if I need to. I would prefer not to have to purchase another CD drive.
Any help and tips on this would be helpful.
iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
