I snagged the 120GB Intel SSD yesterday, and am not in the process of prepping for the upgrade. I'm wondering exactly how to best do it in my situation. I've found similar threads, but none that specifically answered my questions. Can someone help with the following: 1) What's the best way to install Snow Leopard? I have a Time Machine backup. Should I install it fresh, then use the Migration Assistant to transfer all my data. Or is it better to boot into the install disk, then just restore from my backup, which will also install OSX? 2) I transferred a bunch of movies, audiobook, and photos from my internal HD to an external HD to make sure I don't fill the SSD too full, and degrade it's speed. I had around 160GB on my HD, and now it's down to 40GB. So when I restore from Time Machine will it restore from my most recent backup, which is substantially smaller than the backup I made yesterday? Or should I reformat the backup drive to make sure I only restore the 40GB of data? 3) I currently have Vista running on a Boot Camp partition, but also have Parallels running Vista off the Boot Camp partition. I rarely ever boot into Vista though, and usually use Parallels. So with a SSD would it be better/faster for the drive if I just use Parallels, and don't bother creating a Boot Camp partition? If I do that, is there any way to restore with my WinClone image into Parallels, or should I just install from scratch?
