I must got my new laptop, and I bought a caddy and ssd to put in the optical bay. The SSD doesn't get here until tomorrow, so should I install CS3, MS Office, Skype, Autodesk, and the other programs I want to use now (some require install disks)? Or will I not be able to transfer everything to the SSD after I install it? If not, I'll need to put the SSD in the where the HDD is now when I get it to use the superdrive for installing Lion, Win7, CS3, and Office. Or if I could do all of that now and transfer it and the OS to the SSD when I get it with both drives installed, that would be great.
