I have just received a new PC and would like to transfer all data (program files and personal files) from my old laptop to the new. I understand that the easiest and most efficient way to do this is to use a network cable. Can someone help me understand the step by step process involved in making this happen? Or, suggest a tutorial?

that may work, but it would probably be harder than what you would want to do. I don't know if that last sentence made sense.

What kind of laptop is it (off curiosity)

If you only want to transfer and have no need to keep them conneceted you can use a Crossover cable. That will be the most cost effectve.
