Forum Question: Transferring Files From PC Laptop To MacBook Pro

Just purchased the MacBook Pro 17″. Althought I’ve owned the iPad since day one, this is really my first experience with a Apple computer. How do I transfer all my files from my laptop (PC) to my MacBook Pro?

    One way is Migration Assistant. It is already on your Mac, and the PC component you can get from the Apple site:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1415
    You can always share files over the network between the two machines and just transfer what you want, file-by-file or folder-by-folder.
    Another method is to simply use an external drive or a USB flash drive to shuttle files over.
    Apple also offers a free service where they will transfer your files for you. But I think you have to have bought your Mac from an Apple Store, and have asked for it then. But maybe not. Might be worth giving your local Apple Store a call and asking.
