    Hi, I'm pretty Mac savvy but I started thinking about what I'm gonna do when I get my new MBP in a few days and I have a question.

    I currently have an older MB that I recently put a 256 SSD in (knowing that I would soon transfer it to a new machine)... I have no need for a fresh start or anything, I would like to keep all my software/plug-ins authorized and my prefs the same and all that. So I think that I could just transfer my SSD into the MBP before I even turn it on, right? ... But my issue is this... If I do just put my current drive in the new MBP will it recognize that it's a new machine and know to go through all the registration process? Or, should I start it up out of the box for registration and warranty purposes, then install the SSD?

    I'm sorry if i'm not making any sense... wasn't really sure how to phrase this question...
