Dave,

Quick question. First thank you for this remarkable software. I had been using it for a while, recently got an AEBS and used time machine for NAS backups. When i had issues with the ridiculous waiting times in the preparing stage, i slapped myself, and came back to super duper.

Anyways, all that aside. I will soon be purchasing a new MBP, and am currently on an iBook, running Leopard. I have read a few other threads that are similar, so this is more of a confirmation. Would you suggest that I use the migration assistant (using clone as source), as compared to doing a clone to the new MBP? Will the migration assistant transfer over my keychain, all my registered programs etc...? I just want to make this as seamless as possible.

Thanks for your time!

Yes, I'd recommend using the Migration Assistant, given that it's a new Mac. A copy to it might work, but I think you're better off migrating.
