Hi,

 

I ordered a new Mac Mini, and I am considering to put a SSD drive in it, as described here:

Obviously, I want the SSD to be the boot drive, what is the best way to get OSX on it:

* Download it from the App Store

* Clone it from the original stock HDD with Carbon Copy Cloner

 

To me, cloning seems the easiest way, but are there any disadvantages to this?
