    Is there a way for me to completely transfer her entire profile (pictures, music, documents, saved preferences, etc) to the new computer?

    How do I do it?

    When you set up the new computer it'll ask if you'd like to transfer existing settings from another computer, say yes and do what it says to do. This will require you to connect the macs together through a FW400 cable.

    To answer your question, yes that is the FireWire cable that you will need to perform the transfer.
