Yes, there is a better way: use Setup Assistant to bring over your old data, settings etc., instead of Migration Assistant. But to do so now, you'll have to erase the hard drive, reinstall the OS from the factory DVDs that came with the new computer, and when Setup Assistant invites you to transfer your old data, do so right then. Setup Assistant will only run once, and if you quit it you'll have to use Migration Assistant instead. The advantage of SA over MA is that the former does not create a second new user account, while MA does.
