well firstly, the versions of apps you're trying to copy may not be universal. Is the iMac an intel mac? I don't think they *require* universal versions, but it certainly would run much smoother with them.

Also, simply copying apps doesn't always work, as there can often be other inconveniently named necessary files all over the place. I'd say the best thing to do is download them overnight if possible (one at a time if it would take too long) This way, you know you're getting all the files needed, the latest version, and it'll just help keep files cleaner.

Of course, if you have the installers still on your powerbook, you could copy those and update later.
