New SSD

Hi! Today, I will be ordering a new SSD for my 11' MBA from OWC. What I was wondering is will I be able to install all of the stuff on my old drive from an external drive? Is that possible? Also, does anyone have experience with OWC? Are they good?

Company is good. They offer a kit that will help you duplicate your drive.

First connect your new SSD externally and use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone your existing internal disk. Then pull out the old internal disk and replace it with your cloned SSD.

I did exactly that and it was easy, painless, and quick.
