Rick Lewis Posted December 15, 2017 Share Posted December 15, 2017 After the first of the year, and I mean right after, I will be purchasing a new 27" iMac with 5K monitor. I am currently running an 8 year old Mac Pro (early 2009) and El Capitan OIS (10.11.6) with a 26" NEC MultiSync LCD monitor. After this year Apple have said they will no longer support this OIS and it is now the minimum requirement for Adobe LR CC Classic and Photoshop, so its time for an upgrade. I'm getting the spinning beachball a lot now. The main problem, honestly, is the old graphics card. I can put up with the slowness but the old girl needs to retire. (That last is a nice compliment & not meant to be sexist). I run Time Machine and do a backup every evening at the conclusion of my day. This will be my first ever use of Time Machine to install in a new Mac my software etc from Time Machine. I've been told and read that it is pretty simple and easy but are there things I should know up front, warnings, best practices etc that anyone can pass along. I'm excited to get the new machine, as my current one is definitely struggling, but I'm also a little very apprehensive about file transfer and software transfer. Any tips?
