I am waiting for my new Plextor M3 Pro 256GB SSD to arrive, and as I sit here twiddling my thumbs I've been going back and forth on what to do once it comes. I initially thought I would use CCC to clone my late 2011 MBP Lion hardrive to an external drive (as a backup) and then clean install ML. If I had no issues then I would clone the ML drive to the SSD and install the SSD in the MBP. But...with some of the issues arising with ML, I'm starting to rethink this. Would it make more sense to just clone my Lion drive to the SSD, install the SSD, and wait maybe until 10.8.1 to move to ML? I figure either way if ML didn't work out I'd have a Lion clone to fall back on, but I like to make my life less stressful whenever possible. What do you guys and gals think?
