Hi guys, I have a base 2011 mini + 8GB of RAM. Performance is OK, but I'm used to SSD on my W7 box, and I think it would be fun to upgrade my mini. I've been temped by the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB, which B&H now has on sale for $230. Since I would never need more than 256GB of local storage, I could just run the SSD as the single drive. My media is stored on a NAS. In other words, I wouldn't need the data doubler kit, or reuse the 500GB drive in the mini. Here's my question: What would be the most efficient way to re-install Mountain Lion for a fresh drive? I don't really have much on my current mini, just a few programs and maybe 50GB in iTunes. I do back up via Time Machine. Seems like either Time Machine or some type of cloning software would work... but (coming from my Windows days) I'm always a bit hesitant to just copy over (old to new) directly, in fear of having a bunch of "junk" come along with it. Changes maybe from programs long deleted, and other baggage. A clean OS install always seems to be the most effective thing, in my experience. So what's the best way to get that "fresh out of the box" Mountain Lion experience, while still keeping a dozen or so existing applications + iTunes?
