Reinstall software after installation of newer version Ubuntu

I have just installed ubuntu on my friends laptop. I will install ubuntu on my own machine next week, but I don't want to do that. I have not only installed ubuntu, but also installed a lot of applications and configure a lot of them (like Pidgin, Firefox, etc.). Is it possible to somehow copy the already installed ubuntu into a another machine?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Christopher I don't agree with that duplicate. He wants to clone the current installation rather than upgrading is my understanding. –  gertvdijk Dec 30 '12 at 3:05
@gertvdijk Yes, the first link is much better. askubuntu.com/questions/21243/… –  user8290 Dec 30 '12 at 3:30
