Migrating from xp to windows 7 - hours to get this done!? Am I doing something wrong?

Am I doing something wrong?
user has an xp laptop. Got a win 7 laptop.
Both are connected to network via wireless
Ran the Windows easy transfer app. said there were 36 gb of data to move. Took all night (yeah, a wired connection for both would have likely helped?).
Then install quickbooks, install updates, install new version of ACT! because their xp version doesn't run on win 7.
hours of stuff to do. Again, yeah, there's transfer time of the data between machines. but is there something I am doing wrong to simplify / speed up process?
The new machine has an i3 - 4010U at 1.70 GHz with 4 GB ram and 500 gb hard drive. I usually go with i5 chips.
is that part of the issue?
