How do I transfer files between computers?
 
Hi, my old Macbook finally bought the farm and it's logic board was killed. However, the hard drive still lives on, with all of my music, pictures and files. I just purchased a new Macbook Pro to replace it. How would I transfer all of the files from the old computer to the new one?

Remove the hard drive from your old MacBook...install it in an external hard drive enclosure...transfer your files to your new MacBook Pro.

Hope this helps,

Do what Pigoo suggested with the external case with your old hard drive and you can either manually transfer the files or use the Migration Assistant.

Just be careful what you migrate to the new machine if it's running Snow Leopard as a lot of old software like say Paragon will cause you a lot of issues in Snow Leopard!
