Hi, I have a late 2011 Macbook Pro 15 inch and I am thinking about buying and Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC512 512GB replacing by HDD with SSD.

I use both Windows and OSX and is therefore using bootcamp. I've been googling a bit and found two tools that could be useful when migrating both OS's to the new drive.

Carbon cloner
Winclone bootcamp

I do not want to install everything from the beginning again so I really hope I can clone my drive.

(1). So will these tools be what I need for migrating to SSD?

(2). Will I be able to clone the OSX installation partition also?

(3). I've heard that there could be problems running SSD with Windows in bootcamp (AHCI and or Trim). Is this true, what issues (performance/stability/durability) might occur in that case.

(4). Is there anything other that I should think about, any other better tools, better SSD than the Samsung 830 series, common mistakes etc?

Thanks for any replies
