If getting a new computer, get an external 2.5" SATA hard drive enclosure and put your old drive in it. USB is fine but firewire would be better. Go to applications - utilites - migration assistant and pick "transfer from an external hard drive or other backup. You can move just user data or settings or applications or all of them.
