Can I hook up my old desktop computer to my laptop?

Question by Tertium Quid: Can I hook up my old desktop computer to my laptop?
I have bought a new laptop computer. I am wondering if I can hook it up to my old desktop tower? I would like to be able to access the files, and some programs, I have stored on my desktop hard drive and import them to my laptop. Is this possible? If so, what equipment, cables, etc., do I need? Thanks.

Yes. There is a way to do it through a USB port if you have the software for it but most of us just hook them to the same router and share files.

Once you go through the Network Wizard, right-click on the files you want to share and select Share This File. Or you can cheat and buy Network Magic for about 30 bucks.
