Move, copy or export Lightroom classic catalog

I have a external hardDrive connected to my iMac with photos. The Lightroom classic catalogs are on the Imac. I just received my new MacBook Pro which will replace the iMac. I will unplug the external drive from the back of the iMac and connect it to the docking station of the MacBook Pro. Is it best to copy, export or move my Lightroom classic catalogs from the iMac to the new MacBook Pro which will act as my new desktop.

Is there any Performance benefit to keep the catalogs on the external drive along with the photographs or is it best to put the catalogs on the MacBook Pro?

I should also say that the new MacBook Pro has a faster ssd drive. Would placing the catalogs on the MacBook be more efficient due to the faster drive?

thanks
