Disclaimer: I don't know the differences -- but I don't need to. As long as the two systems are of the same architecture, you may move them around without too much trouble. There are a few things to be careful about:
  • The physical device number (sd0, wd1) may change -- this will be a problem if you use physical device numbers in /etc/fstab. If you use DUIDs instead; there should be no problem.
  • Your NICs will likely have changed device names, so you will likely need to rename /etc/hostname.* files.
...I don't know how to reset the display settings to fit the new small screen , the CLI way I mean ...
I'm not sure I understand the question ... but then, I don't know either computer.
