    Cloning won't work. Either use Migration Assistant on the new MBP or backup your user directory.

    You will get nasty kernal panics for cloning. They have different system drivers.

    The Migration Assistant works most of the times great. I use it all the time when getting new hardware. Just reboot your old machine holding down the T key. You will see after a while the firewire symbol. The startup wizard on the new machine will guide you through the process
