Bare Metal Restore Dissimilar Hardware

Software recommendation for Bare Metal Restore of Dissimilar Hardware.  I have an older Asus VivoBook S500C running current version of Windows 10.  I would like to purchase a new laptop and do an image restore without starting from scratch reinstalling individual software packages.

Business or Personal :

 1 or more machines?

If personal, I would use Acronis products : https://www.acronis.com/en-us/business/backup/

I too was leaning toward Acronis and yes, this is a personal machine.  Why would you not use Acronis for business scenario?

I have always liked the Acronis interface and how easy and quick it is for backup and restore. As you see above in my link, I chose the business route to post. Mostly because it is expandable not really because of a feature difference. The Bare Metal Universal restore feature of acronis is the most attractive part of it because for a relatively cheap price you can have a reliable, dependable, and easy to use interface as well has be able to restore to any hardware running traditional CPU architecture. The HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) can be completely modified and it isn't dependent upon drivers as they are replaced in the Universal Restore Process.


For my money I would sware by nothing else..


Veaam on the other hand, I have had issues with in the past, but that is a story for another day.
