Usually upgrading to a new PC means reliving the decisions behind every tweak and personalized setting you've ever made to every program you've ever used. Forget that. PT Pro automatically makes a copy of all those settings as well as all your data files and transfers those settings intact to your new system. The result: That spanking new system may make you more productive after all.
