MacBook Air

I'm switching to a MacBook Air, not one of the newer generation, but a brand new older generation -- I couldn't pass up the deal of saving over $800. I'm in the process of migrating everything from my MacBook Pro over to the Air right now, so stay tuned for updates once I get everything up and running.

But because I'm writing about it -- a few quick migration tips:
  • Get the USB to ethernet adapter for the Air and plug both it and the Mac you are migrating from into the same switch.
  • Make sure that you don't have more data, applications, etc. on the Mac you are migrating from than will fit on the Air. I had to do some pruning and archiving, which actually wound up being a good process.
  • Use the Apple Migration Assistant -- it just doesn't get any easier.
Stay tuned.
