My MBP 17" went in for a new main board, and is due back tomorrow.
In the meantime I bought myself a nice little 13"MBP, which I have installed from scratch (including finding all licenses, copying over mail blah blah)
I haven't done this for a couple of years, and it was obviously a good excercise as the 13" is running faster than the 17" was.
Now to the question.
My 17" also needs a new hard drive, which I've bought (500Gb 7200). The obvious thing to do is to use CarbonCopyCloner to clone the newly setup 13" hard drive onto the new 500Gb and pop it into the 17".
I'm pretty sure that'll work okay, but will it cause problems with the different graphics/sound cards
It'll save me a couple of days work to do it this way.
Incidentally, both are unibody machines.
Any help would be much appreciated
