    Yes, that's the easiest and most secure way. Then erase the old one and use it for Time Machine

    Awesome. I plan on doing the same thing after my classes are over today. It's almost too hard to go to my last class when I've been walking around with my new hdd in my backpack since this morning just waiting to install it! lol
