I will now confess that the new iMacs weren’t my only purchase last week. This morning, my new MacBook Air arrived. I had been wanting one since they were announced, and I simply couldn’t hold out any longer.
I used Apple’s Migration Assistant to transfer all of my data over from my black MacBook to the new MB Air, and (of course), it worked flawlessly. Unlike the iMacs, this process is done wirelessly with the MB Air, since it doesn’t have a FireWire port.
I will share a tip and a complaint about the migration process:
- Tip :: Instead of letting the migration take place over your office network, create a Computer-to-Computer network. The process will go quicker and not tie up your office network resources.
- Criticism :: It too waaaaaay too long to migrate the data. How long? Try over seven hours! Frankly, I expected more from Apple than to allow this process slower than molasses.
I will have additional posts later this week about the new MacBook Air, the transition process, and my thoughts on using this beautiful new computer.
