Two new migration products hit the market today — Move2Mac and Transfer My PC.
Both products use a combination of cables and software to enable users to migrate data, settings and files from a PC to a Mac (Move2Mac) or from one PC to another (Transfer My PC). Users can choose which files they want to transfer to their new machine, cutting down on clutter. The makers claim that it takes around 15-20 minutes to transfer 500MB.
Move2Mac is designed to help PC users make the switch. It helps users to shift music, photos, documents, spreadsheets, files, folders, internet favourites, dialup connections and Outlook address books from a Windows-based PC to a Mac.
Transfer My PC costs from £34.99 inc VAT and Move2Mac costs £39.99 inc VAT, a multi-user version of Transfer My PC can also be purchased, with pricing provided on request. Both can be bought online from www.orlogix.com, which also provides a list of resellers if you prefer a boxed copy.
Look out for reviews of the software in a future issue of PC Advisor.
