I just got my wife a new MacBook Pro and I'm about finished with transitioning from her old one to the new one.

One thing I have yet to do is setup the printers.

Is there a way to move all of the connected printers from her old MBP to the new one without having to set them all up from scratch again?

Is the old Mac running Snow Leopard as well? If not, then your mileage may vary. – Arjan Sep 13 '09 at 14:43
No, it's not :-( – Jason Sep 13 '09 at 14:45

Given the problems some people reported with printers during (early adopter) updates from 10.5 to 10.6, I'd not try to migrate the drivers...

Just plug-in the printers and see what happens?

Thanks, After I did some more research I came to the same conclusion – Jason Sep 13 '09 at 15:20
