Does your friend also have identical hardware? If not, then you should avoid trying to copy the exact image of your Ubuntu machine.

What you can do, though, just for the apps, is copy everything in the /var/cache/apt/archives folder to a portable medium, then to the desktop of your friend's machine and then type these commands in the terminal (http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/terminal):
cd ~/Desktop
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

You can make an image using a program called quickstart, you can get it here: http://quickstart.phpbb.net (http://quickstart.phpbb.net/)

Hope this helps :)

You could also order an Ubuntu DVD and add it as a repository.
