    I'm not too familiar with Outlook, but what you need to do is export your contacts as a vCard. I'm guessing: File > Export > vCard.

    Then put this vCard file onto your new mac. Open Address Book and click File > Import > vCard. Then select the vCard file. That should do it :)

    OS X is different to windows because your items (emails, contacts, calander) are split up into different applications, but they all work together, so Apple Mail looks at the Address Book app to get your contact's details.
