    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, New AppleTV (4?)
    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
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    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.
