I have a few questions regarding upgrading from one Macbook to another and transferring data/settings.

I have a larger HD in my current Macbook than my new one will have, and I would like to continue to use my current HD in the new Macbook.
I have a bootable clone of my current HD on an external drive, and this backup was created using SuperDuper. I also have Time Machine backups on another external drive.
The old Macbook is a 2006 white 2GHZ Macbook running Snow Leopard. The new Macbook will most likely be a current generation 13" Macbook Pro.
I don't use Mail.app, but use Gmail instead.
Given those facts, what is the best way to get my stuff onto the new Macbook (when I get it) with the least amount of work?
Thanks, as always, for your help.
