    Either home sharing or using the migration tool with the Macbook in Target disk mode (assuming you can with the model you have).

    I think home sharing is the easiest option. From your Mac Mini, connect to the Macbooks library (once home sharing is enabled) and on the drop down menu (Show:) select 'Items not in my library' highlight then import.

    It works for me as I usually import via my Macbook (cos my Mini doesn't have a superdrive), what you import is up to you as you select what you want.
