Are you guys going with the regular upgrade or clean install? I'm undecided at this point.

I won't be upgrading until next month, but I'm thinking of going for a clean install. Before than, I'll upgrade the ram from 1 to 2gb

I think we should all chip in and buy new Minis for the Penguins! Cool

Considering I haven't gone 100% clean since 10.3 was out, I think I'll clean install for once and manually migrate my data over.

Can you guys also start up a collection for buying me a new LCD? Smile

I've decided to go with the clean install though. I have everything backed up and I'm thinking it might take up a little less space on the hard drive. It could also be a little less problematic going forward. And it's not like I have anything else to do Friday night. Crying or Very sad

Any advice how to "fully backup" the data before clean install? I should clone my entire drive to a hdd or just save my data? I'm afraid that i'll miss out on some impt stuff.
