Setting up an extra Mac: Clone or re-install?

I want to clone my Mac, so that the projects open on both computers without hassle.

What would be the best way? To clone my main Mac (with a couple of software licensing issues to sort out)...or just simply install everything from scratch?

Any experiences?

Thanks samphony! Any issues when cloning? I’d imagine some of the piracy protection is based around the machine ID, and has to be re-installed.

That's correct. You have to purchase additional licenses and make new installations (or activation) for the apps which are based on this method.

Thanks guys! I’ll clone, and then deal with the broken activations.

Time machine, carbon copy cloner or something else?
