I've used Time Machine at least three times to create an exact copy of all my data, settings, applications, Aperture, iTunes & iPhoto libraries to a series of new iMacs without the slightest hitch.

It is said that if you had a problem on your original Mac, then Migration Assistant was better in that you could selectively transfer just those things you wanted; but as I've never been in that position I've always used TM.

TM is the easiest way of duplicating your existing system - assuming no problems.
