Hi guys, I got 1 old laptop and a new laptop. Is there any very fast and efficient way to transfer some of my old laptop files that i want to transfer to this new laptop?

Just use a crossover cable;

Some interfaces can recognise and use a normal ethernet cable.

How do you connect to the internet? Do you have a router of some sort? Then just connect both computers to the network and transfer the files. You can use either Windows networking features (personally I don't, so can't advise on details here) or set up a ftp connection (follow this tutorial).

The faster way,and the best for me is using the Crossover cable. Mike Connor gives you a link above.

Since most people have a home network with a router now, the easiest way is to just network them together.

Whichever one you like or works for you! They all work. As long as you achieve your target it doesn't matter which one you use.
