Parman, the best practice for SSD is to do a full clean install so you get the format and alignment correct. Images don't work very well, I have experience trying, lol.

You're correct i remember about having to actually manually change the alignment if you're doing an image. I will probably just wait till i get my laptop.

Thanks for the reminder, my excitement let me completely space.

Imaging works very well - if you do it right. Macrium can even do the alignment for you.

Partition alignment and the Macrium Reflect cloning and restore function

To preserve the source partition alignment either...
  1. Select the source partition check box(es) and click the 'Copy selected partitions' link.
  2. Drag and drop the source partition(s) to free space on the target disk
