    So I currently have a late 2008 MacBook Pro. I may be getting a new iMac for Christmas. My question is, is there a way to basically transfer all of my files/programs/etc. to the new Mac without having to reinstall everything? The iMac will become my primary computer, and the MBP will become kind of a sitting on the couch/travel computer. This is the first time I will be upgrading Macs, as the MBP was my first non-PC computer.

    The MBP is running Snow Leopard already.

    Migration Assistant will do it easily, you just need a cable or an external drive.

    Ah yes, that's right. I remember seeing that when I bought my MBP. I knew Apple would have an easy solution.
