Laplink PC Mover Professional

maximum pc
9 March 2010
  • Summary: You have to purchase a new $60 key for each additional machine moved. The Home version is cheaper at $40, but does not let you pick and choose which apps to move. In the end, we’re pleasantly surprised with PC Mover Professional. It’s a bit like hiring a professional moving company to move you to a new house instead of doing it yourself.
  • Pros: Machine-to-machine migration; moves many apps with surprising fidelity.
  • Cons: Large moves can take days, especially over gigabit; key purchase limits you to a single move.

Laplink PCmover (September 2009)

PC Magazine
18 November 2009
  • Conclusion: For anyone wanting to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7, Laplink's PCmover is a thing of beauty. Some of its processes seem more geared towards migrations between two machines as opposed to an in-place upgrade, but it's a small price to pay for this kind of convenience.
  • Pros: Transfer settings, user accounts, documents, and applications from Windows XP to Windows 7. Lots of transferring options. As quick as or quicker than Microsoft's own Upgrade option for Vista-to-7 installations.
  • Cons: Lots of wizard screens. Tries to install browser toolbar. Undoing migration doesn't remove all folders and files.

Pack up your old PC and move to a new one

Consumer Electronics Net
1 August 2006
  • Excerpt: The biggest hassle when buying a new PC is reinstalling all of your old software, reregistering, entering serial numbers, and hoping you got everything you needed.  With Laplinks PCmover, having this done automatically for you is as simple as 1, 2, 3. The last time I purchased a new laptop, it took me the better part of three days to reinstall and reset the new system to my liking.

Laplink PCmover 3

COMPUTER BILD
12 December 2008
  • Conclusion: PCmover erwies sich als ein brauchbarer Umzugshelfer. Die Software erledigt den Transport von Programmen samt Einstellungen und Daten zuverlässig. Egal, ob ein Umzug von XP auf XP, XP auf Vista oder Vista auf Vista ansteht. Manko: Die Software funktioniert nur für einen Umzug. Für diese Einschränkung und den Aktivierungszwang gab’s eine Abwertung.
  • Pros: Überträgt ganze Programme inklusive Einstellungen, Einfache Bedienung
  • Cons: Aktivierungszwang, Lizenz gilt immer nur für einen Umzug, Kein Umzug von Vista auf XP möglich
