I have a mid 2009 13" Macbook Pro that seems to have developed some problems. Most everything I do starts the beach ball spinning. I ordered a Samsung SSD to replace the hard drive, in hopes this will improve things. My original plan was to just clone the old drive to the new one, but I'm wondering if a fresh install is a better way to go? I don't have that much on the computer that can't be reloaded, if necessary. If starting fresh is a better way to go, I am lost as to how to go about it. I am running Lion on the computer now, and did make a Lion recovery disk. I also have the Leopard disk that came with the computer, as well as a Snow Leopard disk. Anyway I would appreciate opinions as to which way to go, and also detailed instructions as to how to go about a fresh install. Thanks for any help.
