Thanks. I guess I try option 2. What's the preferred way to install OS X onto the USB connected drive?

Thanks for the help @Undo. Don't know if it will work on my machine, but I appreciate the advice.

comment Can I edit the same Pages document on both my iPad and my Mac?
I uploaded a Pages doc into my iCloud "iWork" area using the Web interface, thus creating a redundant copy. Now it appears in the Web interface and in Pages on my iPad. In OS X, when I double click it in a Web browser, iCloud offers to allow me to "download" it and offers "Pages '09" as the target location (which makes no sense -- how can a program be a filesystem location?) I accepted that and the document appeared as a third copy on my desktop. Pages desktop app not offering iCloud files. By any chance could there possibly be some way to do this that doesn't involve iCloud?

comment Can I edit the same Pages document on both my iPad and my Mac?
Thanks for the reply. I have both devices configured to use the same iCloud account. How do I access my documents that are in iCloud? When I launch Pages on my Mac there's no list of documents, nor when I choose File > Open -- just the usual filesystem navigation dialog.

I somehow inadvertently launched it -- I may have clicked a mailto link. I removed the configurations. Thanks.

comment Is it safe to buy a MacBook Pro from some guy on eBay?
Thanks. This seller's prices are a little under Apple's, but even he says openly that most of the savings is on tax. So it isn't a "too good to be true" situation. But yeah, his thing of reselling AppleCare warrantees seems pretty weird. The source for these machines puzzles me, though. If you see one N.I.B. computer on Craigslist for $800 less than new price, then OK sure, obviously it "fell off the truck." But this eBay guy has dozens. Maybe he owns a shop and is an authorized reseller and his eBay store is just an extension of that. That would explain how he has warrantees for sale.

comment What's the easiest way to automate logging into a website?
OK, great. I have 1Password but I didn't know they had global keyboard shortcuts. Where would I look for that? I did a search in the docs and couldn't find it. I did figure out that the browser plugins will open a new tab and log you in someplace, so that's good.
