Migration from G5 desktop to new MBP


I'm currently running a desktop G5 PowerMac (PPC) with 10.4.11. Everything is wonderful. They finally got it right. I have SD! backups to a second internal HD, to an external HD, and a sparseimage to another partition on the external drive. SD! has saved my bacon on a couple of occasions by enabling a quick restore when the main drive crashed catastrophically. I'm very happy with the status quo.

Due to increased travel demands in my work, I plan to purchase a new, Intel MacBook Pro in the fairly near future. No doubt, the new MBP will have 10.5.x installed. From reading other threads here, it appears I can't do a retrograde to 10.4.11 for the new MBP, so I'll bite the bullet and make the best of it with 10.5.x. See this article from MacFixit:

It leaves me wondering whether I can use SD! to migrate to a new, Intel MacBook Pro from my desktop G5 (PowerPC). Your comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your assist.
