Am going to replace the existing hard drive on my MBP 13 with a 120GB Mercury SSD drive. I haven't done much of this, so I'm double checking my information.

Judging from the forums here and elsewhere, this is the order of steps I'm guessing I should take:

1. Use SuperDuper to backup contents of MBP hard drive onto an external drive (after I reformat).
2. Remove old hard drive and install SSD drive.
3. Hook up external and boot from SuperDuper created clone.
4. Use Apple Migration Assistant to transfer files to new drive.

Is this the right plan? Or is there a better way?
