After much deliberation as to what machine I am going to be buying, I have decided to get the low end i5 Macbook Pro. I was all set on the high end, but read that the upgrade to i7 really wasn't worth the money. I won't be doing any video or much photo editing so the extra savings will be going to RAM and an SSD. That being said, before I purchase my SSD and computer, I want to make sure that i have plan of action correct. I will be buying the data doubler and installing the SSD in the HDD position and replacing the optical drive with the original HDD. Here is my question. Can i install the DD and the SSD before even turning on the computer for the first time, and insert the Install disk and boot from there? I would format the drives appropriately and install the OS directly on to the SSD. From there I would use Migrate Assistant to move all my old files and programs on to the HDD after that. Is this an appropriate way to go about doing this?
