Well sure.

It gave me a couple connection options (network, firewire) and from then on it led me step by step through the process, telling me exactly what to do at each step. Very simple.
Oh how very cool! Here I've been thinking I'd have to drag the old machine with me on the 2.5 hour trek to the nearest Apple Store, so they could do the transfer for me (and be stuck cooling my heels at that mall all day while they do it)!

Now...any idea what the setup software would do if the new Mac has just one internal hard drive and the old one has two internals? I'd hope that as long as the new internal was big enough to hold the contents of both internals it would transfer both, perhaps putting the contents of the non-boot drive into a folder of the same name.
