Welcome to the Mac forums! See the following Wiki description
of the MA and what it does.
However, you can easily move most of your document and photos manually by using a plug in flash drive or even an external hard drive. It's a matter of copying from one to the other. There are other ways to transfer files - Firewire to Firewire, copy cable, and so forth.
Transferring iTunes is a bit more involved because you would want to "authorize" the new machine for your iTunes account and at the same time de-authorize the older one. You can also transfer your entire iTunes library to the new machine using the MA, but it may be easier to do it manually.
