If it's the data from the hard drive on the old computer you're mostly concerned about, an external hard drive enclosure, or dock would allow you to connect your old hard drive to your new computer.
If you'd rather try and get that old computer working again, instead of throwing it away, repairing the DC power jack is not terribly difficult. You'll need to find a repair manual for your computer that offers advice on removing the motherboard. Then it's just a matter of removing the old power jack, and soldering in a new one. You can generally buy a new power jack on ebay for under $10.
Unless your new computer is the same make and model, the battery will be sized differently, and quite possibly different voltage. Really no way to charge it using your new notebook.
