    ok, here it goes.

    I have a laptop (ASUS M600) which is three years old and the lan cable doesn't work so i can only connect through wireless.
    Because it was very slow and lagging i brought a new one (Acer Aspire One 751 11.6” HD Netbook). so i want to know how to transfer all , with os i mean by that ( if not most) of my data on my old laptop to my new netbook, wireless.

    can anyone help me? [​IMG]

    You would be better off not trying to copy over your OS when you do the data transfer. Chances are Windows would crash without a lot of configuration. If you do need to install an OS onto your new netbook, there are tutorials floating around to show how to do that from a usb flash drive.

    As for transferring the data itself, you could simply set up network sharing and transfer the data wirelessly from your old laptop to your new computer. It'll be slow, but you only need to do it once.

    Assuming you have the means of connecting both systems, such as through a router, you could simply transfer the files wirelessly to each other.

    It's possible to share a folder through the network, or an entire drive. I'm not sure what version of Windows you are running. To share a folder/drive usually involves right clicking it, and selecting either share or going into its properties and doing it from there.
    You should be able to see the other laptop through My Networks, or whatever it is called in your OS. From there you can view shared folders and dump your files.

    If you're still uncertain I advice you to google a tutorial.

    Another option would be to transfer files through a usb device. Such as a usb hard drive, or flash drive.
