You can simply use file

You can simply use file migration.

...and for a bootable backup drive, you can use SuperDuper with an external USB drive.

Time Machine backup

I used Time Machine to make a backup of my old MacBook to an external hard drive. When I got my new Mac Mini I simply ran Migration Assistant on my new Mac and it copied all my settings, applications and documents to the Mini.

I have our iTunes library on an external hard drive so I didn't have to copy iTunes.

If your old Mac has firewire, you could get the Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter, connect both Macs through a firewire cable and start up the old Mac in target disc mode (by holding the T during startup). The new Mac will see the old Mac as a hard drive.
