    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.
