Assuming the disk is in a usable state I'd take it out of the old MBP and connect it to the new one with either a 2.5" sata - usb enclosure or a sata - usb interface kit

examples:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/DIGIFLEX-Dri...sata+enclosure

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

And the very best of luck. Liquids + electronics = death all too often. Remind her to keep all liquids, including drinks, well away.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Well Alice .. take it with a grain of rice!

Others say half a day in a freezer but I always put my money on the liquid. Sometimes it takes weeks and/or months but it usually wins alas.
