Windows 7: Change laptop's HDD with a faster one

Hello guys,

I'll probably buy 120 GB SSD drive and use it for windows and few programs that I used most of the time. 120 GB would be more than enough. I'll keep old HDD for data, movies etc.
I have found very interesting way to skip clean install of windows. Instead it is possible to migrate to new HDD/SSD with mini partition tool.
Here is tutorial how to do that. It seems very easy. I have noticed one thing though and that is the fact that in tutorial bigger disk is used to migrate OS to. In my case I would have smaller.
I think the best approach would be to shrink C partition to let's say 100 GB. This way I can option to only migrate windows. (I think in fact that system reserved and C partition) would be copied this way so they can fit the size of a new SSD.
I think the best bet would be to buy SanDisk 120 GB, it has very reviews.

Thank you all for the help!
