    Just ordered the WD 32 GB 7200 RPM HDD for my 2.4 Alu Macbook....

    Instead of reinstalling from the disks and using a Time Machine backup, I was thinking about just cloning the drive. Have looked at both Super Duper, and Carbon Copy Cloner, so which is the best way to get everything on the new HDD?

    Time machine worked for me, after I reformatted the new hard drive.

    both ways will work perfectly fine. just make sure you format the new drive first. I've not used carbon copy cloner, but i use super duper and really like it.
