imac to imac data transfer question ?

Hi folks,

I've recently picked up another imac to replace my existing unit. Not a huge spec. difference but a 27" vs 21.5".

My question is thus....

I have my current Lion mac partitioned into 125gig and 375gig spilt, approx. from a 500gig HDD.

My newer acquisition has a 1TB HDD running Mountain Lion and I want to transfer over my entire setup but not sure how to do it cos the HDDs are different sizes.

Do I partition the new machine and then name the partitions as I have now then instruct Migration Assistant to move accordingly OR purchase some 3rd party clone software and ask that to sort it out ?

I want it setup exactly the same so any replies how would be appreciated.

Ideally, my newer machine would also obviously have the 2nd larger partition as now.
