If you hit the spanner button, select Bookmarks & then Bookmark manager.

From this screen select Organise and there's an option to export bookmarks, save the file to a USB stick.

From your new laptop fire up Chrome and Import the file from the Import Bookmarks and Settings under the Bookmarks option

Put the file where-ever you like, but at some point you'll need to save it to some form of external drive in order to transfer it to your new laptop.

I assume you'll be transferring other files to the new laptop as well, so save it to whatever storage media these files are going on...

You can also try syncing with the new laptop.
