If you have a home network (e.g. more than one computer is sharing your internet connection) you can add the new computer to the network and share files on your network.
You could use removable media (eg. CD, DVD, thumb drive) to transfer the files (this assumes you have a CD writer on the old PC) a few at a time as you need them.
This one's a bit extreme (OK, a lot extreme) - invest in an external HDD caddy/drive case - I got a cheap and cheerful one for about 20GBP. Take the hard disk out of the old PC and put it in the caddy, then install the disk on your laptop using the CD that came with your caddy. If you do not plan to use the old PC again, just leave it at that. Otherwise copy the files onto your laptop HD, then disconnect and replace the HD in your old PC. THe caddy isn't wasted cos if you start to run out of disk space later it will be really easy (and cheaper) to add a second HD. I like extreme solutions to small problems...
