And I stole the wifi card out of my old machine :)

Used Windows Easy Transfer and an external USB drive to copy over about 70GB of data and setup from the old machine. Still have to install quite a few programs by hand, but did Firefox and Putty this morning along with McAfee AV and I was pleased to see all my Firefox bookmarks and so on have been preserved - and the wifi card still works. Thankfully I've developed a habit of saving the installers of programs I've downloaded and installed, so they were all in one directory ready for me to run again :)

I'm seriously looking forward to seeing how Starcraft II runs on this.
