I have a new computer with the same version of Oracle XE as my old computer.   I need to move my development environment including my Oracle XE databases to this new computer.  

What is the best way to move the Oracle XE databases to the new computer?

I suggest you two options:

1) Generate a dump file
a) Use Export Datapump with the Full=Y option to generate a dumpfile.
see http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/utilities/pdf/datapump11g2009_quickstart.pdf
b) Copy the dumpfile to the new computer
c) them import the dump file using impdp

2) If you are familiar with oracle architecture you can copy the datafiles, redologfiles, password file and the control files to the same diretory at the new machine.
