Trust me you made a wise choice. You can use easy transfer to move everything but programs. What I did with programs is install as needed.

One more thing as soon as you are activated and have everything installed, make a system image and put it away (picture of hard drive).

Once a month make a currrent copy. If needed you have the current. If something goes wrong, like your current has a virus. You have the one you put away, no more installs.
