Considering neither has firewire nor ethernet port, I can only think of a few alternatives left:
- wireless migration (very slow)
- time-machine through external drive
- clone (Carbon Copy etc.) through external drive

What's the best method?

I'd suggest cloning through CCC and then running Migration Assistant from the external drive. Since I have a Time Capsule and an ethernet port, I used Migration Assistant from my Time Machine backup, and it took about 3 hours to migrate 50GB of data and applications.
