Want to transfer data from old, nin-working mac book pro to new one

I have a an old MacBook Pro.  The screen is all wacked out and is unusable. But I think the files are still good.  I know nothing about tech.  I think the OS is ver 10.3.xx

Now, I just purchased a brand new MacBookPro  Ver. 10..8.3 OSX
What I'd do is to transfer the data (iTunes) from the old to the new.   Can this be done easily?  I'm thinking that the old computer can basically be hooked us as if it's an external HD, whereby it would be irrelevant whether or not the screen worked.

Just remove the drive and put it into an external USB case.

When you first start the new Mac it will ask you if you have any files you want transferred and just connect the external drive at that time and Migration Assistant should do everything for you:

This should tell you how to remove the hard drive from the old Mac:
