Backup from Core Duo, Restore in Core2 Duo system

Apologies if this isn't the right forum for my question. I'm still a noob at this.
I have a 1st gen macbook pro (core duo based) for work and its served me fine. I now have a chance to upgrade to a current macbook, which is core2 duo based (and better specs). And I'd like to do it with little disruption.
I backup everything on my macbook pro with time-machine. Can I simply restore all that to my macbook? Does the core duo => core2 duo change make any difference? All I know is that the former is 32-bit and the latter is 64-bit? I'm guessing no, but I don't want to find out after the macbook arrives and all. BTW, my mac book pro is running Leopard right now; else I wouldn't have the backups :-)

I'm assuming here you plan on just restoring data, documents, email, movies, music, your installed programs, etc. Obviously, since the new machine will be running Leopard you would not necessarily want to overwrite everything.
BTW, Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper both do an excellent job of cloning an old drive and then copying the data to the new one. Both programs will not overwrite any newer files\folders on the new drive and will only copy files\folders to the new drive that don't exist on it. CCC is free (donation ware), SuperDuper is not.
