One more thing...
Authored by: jiclark on Feb 02, '08 12:44:02PM
Even though I highly recommend both SuperDuper and CarbonCopyCloner (and in fact use SD to make bootable external backup drives for client's machines all the time) I thought it prudent to point out that you really shouldn't use either to clone a hard drive from an old machine to use in a new machine if the new machine is not of the same processor family as the old one!

In other words, it can be dangerous to think that an installation created for a PPC machine will work fine in an Intel one. Best to do a clean install, then copy your data over manually.

Hope that makes sense!
