I am off overseas for 3 months later this year so have invested in a grunty laptop to take with me, currently i am using a windows 7 x64 desktop at home and i want to switch everything to my new laptop.

Of course i could start with a clean install and install all the programs i use and copy over all my files but this would be a long process - is their an easier way?

Can i take an image of my desktop and then restore it on my laptop?

I mainly use open source software so apart form the windows license every else should be fine.

Is this possible or is it easier to spend a weekend setting up everything on my laptop?


Cheers
