I had to move from one MBP to another due to the old one ceasing to work. It was not a happy experience. The Yosemite Carbon Copy bootable backup wouldn't work with the new machine. And Apple's Migration Assistant is like a bad joke — it took the best part of a day to transfer data I could have done manually in about 2 hours, and then crapped out and failed to transfer any of the apps, network settings etc.

Long story short, I ended up going for a clean Mojave installation, reinstalling and authorising all software from scratch (and upgrading what no longer works with Mojave...), and copying any data I wanted direct from my Time Machine backup. After about three or four days I'm up and running again. :beamup:

On the plus side Mojave actually seems like a decent stable OS... once you've disabled half the pointless crap and changed the default settings to sensible ones, and recalibrated the screen so it's rather less orange than the factory 'calibration'. And at least you only have to do this every 5 years or so...
