    I am purchasing a new 13" MBP and will upgrade the hard drive to 500gb before I begin using it. I plan on using SuperDuper to clone my old Macbook drive for use on my new MBP drive.

    Will there a problem cloning between these two models? Do I need a different way to copy the drive from a regular Macbook to a pro? Any help is much appreciated.

    No you will have no problem. You could also do migration assistant.

    I have read one report of losing sound on the MBP doing this. Some small hardware change might be the reason for that.

    Note that you don't need to use a third party app like SD. Disk Utility can do the same thing. The restore option is your friend.
