Advice Needed - Migrating to Macbook Air
This is a multi-facited question and I am seeking advice most of all.
I have a 2008 iMacI would like to retire it and use my 2011 Mac Air as my primary computer (With a Thunderbolt Display)
If I use the Migratiion Assistant - will I have to delete the files currently on my Mac Air?
Is there a way to merge them?
My concern is also space.
I have 256 ssd hard drive on my air with 80 free
The drive on the iMac is 320 Gig HD with 170 Gigs free
I have important programs such as CS6 on my iMacs drive - I would prefer not to have to reinstall them.
I have heard that there are issues with booting and updating an OS on an external drive.
I have considered using Super Duper to move my iMacs system to an external drive and selectively boot to it as needed.
Is that a good idea?
Any advice is truly appreciated.
