Info on suitable USB transfer cable

Hello!

I want to transfer data from one laptop to another, any suggestions(amazon preferably) on which cable or device is best suited to help this? Data consists mostly of documents, music, videos no settings or user data. Both laptops are running Windows 7.

Thanks in advance

Have you given the thought of a decently sized usb thumb drive ? Probably will be cheaper in the long run, and won't have to wait for it to come in the mail, can just pop in your local computer hardware store and pick one up.

Given the quantity of the data i over looked that..hmm i guess that's an option.

Yup, they are extremely handy at times. I keep one in my laptop case at all times and use to carry one with me in my pocket when I was in college.
