I did it when I first set up my new iMac. One of the first few options after you choose language, country, etc. is how to configure. It gives you the option to use a TM backup from an external drive. So, I plugged in the external that I had been using with my MBP and went through the prompts on the iMac. Basically it set my iMac up the same as if I was using my MBP - files and photos were in the same place and same tabs in Safari. It was really all automatic, no major configuring on my part.
