    I just bought a new Macbook Pro and I'm on my existing Macbook Pro right now.

    What is the best way to transfer my settings, programs, etc.. I believe the new laptop will have snow leopord while I am currently on 10.5.8

    You can use Migration Assistant. Just connect them with FireWire cable

    Does that work even across different OS versions? If so, very neat. Thank you.

    Yes, at least I think so. Snow Leopard is basically just rewrote Leopard with some few features.
