I'm fairly new to Macs, so I wanted to check if this was a good way to update my machine. Also I'll comment on my reqs so perhaps there's a better way.
So, I have a MBP 2010 160GB Snow Leopard latest. What I want to do is update to Lion, but, as many have suggested it may be a better idea to do a clean install. Also, I've been wanting to upgrade my HDD to a 320 or 500GB, so I guess this is a good oportunity to do both.
I was thinking in:
- Purchase and download Lion and make a bootable DVD.
- Backup all necessary files in TimeMachine.
- Make the HDD upgrade.
- Install Lion in new HDD
- Restore files/settings with TimeMachine.
Does this make sense? What worries me more is step 5... Do you think this is a good approach or do you have a better alternative?
