Laptop data transfer?

Wife just bought new laptop...wants to transfer gobs of applications and data from old laptop. Are we better off reinstalling the apps on the new machine and transferring the data manually or using a piece of software like PC Laplink to manage the transfer?

...and if we use laplink, what do we do about software like Office where we have an older version on the existing and an already installed newer version on the target? I am not thrilled with the idea of picking thru the various data files manually but I cant quite wrap my head around all the potential problems that come with the transfer software...
