Mac migration Using SuperDuper

Heres my problem...

I am just about to leave the sunny climate of UK (laugh) to live in Botswana for a couple of years.

I have an aluminium intel iMac with Leopard and I have used a Lacie Firewire external drive to create a SuperDuper clone of the whole machine (bootable).

I cant take the iMac with me so will be selling it and want to buy the new MacBook Pro for portability in Africa, however this new machine isn't out yet (expecting the redesign anytime now according to rumours).... So I will probably have to sell the iMac and get the MBP at a later stage and use migration assistant with the SuperDuper clone.

My question is... I have a bucke load of software on my iMac that has been cloned on my Lacie including programs such as Adobe Photoshop CS3, Lightroom 2, Final Cut Express 4, the latest Microsoft Office etc...

... When I migrate using Superduper to the new laptop, will all these apps just work?... or will I have to put in serial numbers etc or register them again online... The problem with Botswana is that the internet there is almost non-existent and having to be online to re-licence any apps could be problematical.

So... If I migrate using SuperDuper will my new machine act just like the old one?

Many thanks for clarification.
