    I upgraded the ram from 2GB to 5GB today and its better already :D

    It is a MacBook Pro 2008 early model

    I have ordered a 1TB Seagate HHD and wondering if I just CCC clone over or do I have to reinstall from scratch for it to recognise the drive benefits :confused:

    Its an upgrade from my Titanium PowerBook 500 with 80GB hd :D

    Depending on how messy your current install is you might get a bit of a boost from a clean install, but it shouldn't matter too much.

    CCC is great and I use it religiously for cloning my Movie Folder to an external HD

    I prefer clean installs when replacing a hard drive that is my OS drive, but than again I do not have 200 apps so for me redownloading all the apps I use is only a few hours
