Transferring Data from one laptop to another

I rec'd a new laptop, and I need to transfer my outlook and all files from one machine (dell latitude) to my new one (compaq).

Is there an easy way to do this, or is paying Circuit City $65 a better alternative?

If thats all your transfering just use a thumb drive. There cheap and there extremely helpful.

You can get like a 512 for 20-30bucks?

** I think i mis-read.** All i seen was outlook. Either way thumb drive is a good investment, and will still work.

If you have a network at home you can use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard, its under Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools, this will also work for direct cable connections. It will move whatever settings you want to migrate. Very easy and quite effective if you generally use MS default storage locations.

I'm a little shallow on what defines a network. They're both using (sharing) a wireless modem, does that constitute a network?
