I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but the keywords I'm using aren't turning up helpful search requests. Short story short: My GF had her macbook fail on her three times; we exercised CA's lemon law and Apple agreed to replace the machine with a current model. We're upgrading to the i5 17" MBP. She's kind enough to give me the new one for my 2.8GHz last generation 17". A decent performance upgrade for me, I hope. Now, I've outfitted my 17" with an Intel SSD and have been using it with much satisfaction and I want to transfer it to the new i5 17". Of course I won't just simply swap the drives and turn the machines on. I figure that I should switch both drives and do a clean install of OS X. Seems simple enough, but I figured I'd run this by you guys to make sure I'm not missing anything. For instance, to I need to reformat the SSD and the stock HDD that will come with the i5? I don't really care about aeroing out the SSD or doing complicated procedures to try to regain its original speed -- it's been plenty fast and I've not really noticed any degradation. Thanks for any help.
