MacBook to New MacBook Pro + apps

Your best bet would be to firewire target disk to your old Mac and use Migration Assistant.. That way you will have an exact duplicate of your your old Mac.Using TM to restore should work also but will take a bit longer you may also bring over some items that aren't necessary. Caveat is that I've never used TM to do a full system restore.
