Is this cable used to transfer files between two macs?

Hi. I am planning to purchase a new macbook pro since the keyboard of my old one broke. I remember when I first bought this macbook pro, I also bought a cable that transferred all files to from my Macbook. Will this cable do the same things and transfer all files? I am not a tech-person, so I really don't understand the description. It would be great if you could help me. And if this isn't the product, will you please suggest what cable is good for transferring files?

  • This cable can only transfer files between two thunderbolt equipped Macs. You may need a FireWire 800 cable or a Time machine backup.
