Hi I wasn't sure where to post this.

Anyway, I currently have a PC and I'm planning to get a laptop next year. I have some songs, videos, pictures, and programs that I want to transfer from this computer to the new one. What do I need for that? I'm not much of a computer person. Oh and preferably, something cheap like under $50. I'm a college student after all :whistling:

The easiest way to do this is if you took a CAT5E crossover cable and connected the two computers network cards together.

Make sure they both have a similar IP address but not the same and you will be able to browse to the other computer through Network Neighborhood.

jaxisland's solution is good, but if you're not computer literate there are other options.

If you have a cd or dvd burner, simply burn them to disk and transfer them that way. You can buy a cd burner for less than $50 from ebay.
Another option is to buy a flash drive. Get one with at least 2gig memory and use that to transfer your music etc.

Whichever method you choose will work, but the cd or dvd option is easiest.
