Best way to move an account to a new iMac

I bought my son a new iMac for his 16 birthday.

What would be the best ( or easiest ) way to move his account from my 4 year old iMac to the new computer.

Any help would be appreciated.

This is what makes Macs beautiful. During the startup for your new computer, you'll be asked if you want to import from another Mac. Connect the two computers via FireWire, et voila. Happy transfer and birthday.

And if you are already past the initial startup, then run the "Migration Assistant", located in "Applications - Utilities".
This will let you transfer his User files and settings.
