Data-program transfer from old to new laptop

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by Mahlon Wagner, Jan 14, 2008.

  1. What kinds of software/hardware are needed for a transfer?
    Old laptop is Thinkpad X40Win XP Pro, and new is Thinkpad T61 Vista
    Home premium.

    I would like it if the programs would also be transferred.

    If they both have an ethernet connection, that would be the
    easiest way.

    thing required would be either a cross cable or 2 normal cables
    plus a hub / switch / router (allmost any device with at least 2
    ethernet ports will do :)

    new. If this is the case, they will need something like:
