Using a simple checklist when deploying a PC or a Mac can ensure that critical migration steps are not overlooked.

Who isn't excited to receive a computer upgrade? Just the thought of a new machine boasting innovative features, a more contemporary design, and longer battery life—not to mention faster computation speeds—is enough to make the most curmudgeonly tech professional smile.

Of course, receiving a computer is one thing, successful migration is another. When a new computer doesn't possess the same functionality, connectivity, applications, and files as before, a new computer may seem more like a punishment than a present.

This is where a PC and Mac migration checklist can help. TechRepublic Premium author Erik Eckel created the ultimate PC and Mac migration checklist to ensure users receiving new computers experience a positive outcome.
