migration using SD vs Time Machine


I've got a 2007 era iMac that will be replaced this weekend with one of the 2011 models. In the past few years, I've used Time Machine and Super Duper side by side on different external drives, one for TM and multiple for SD clones (and I've been glad on more than one occasion that I've had each rather than just one or the other!).

My question is this: When the new Mac prompts me to copy over information from my previous machine, is there any particular advantage to pointing it to a SuperDuper cloned drive vs my Time Machine drive, or vice versa?

Assuming both are up to date prior to the migration, would one yield "better" or "more reliable" results, or have less chance of something going wrong?

I've seen the "I've got a new Mac: should I SuperDuper! to it?" FAQ entry but I think that is addressing a slightly different question than the one I am asking, though please correct me if I am wrong, or if my question is answered elsewhere.

Thank you.
Chris [a happy SuperDuper customer for ~3 years]

[edit: Just adding that both machines will be Snow Leopard, no Lion issues/questions here...]
