The Ole harddrive was absolutely filled - No place for change of MAC OS X Version
The repair went very well - Did not use any Disk Cloning tools Just Disk Utolities and Time Machine
Just format your new drive with MAC OS X Disk Utilities as a Bootable Partition - Do a restore from Time Machine to Your New Drive - Test it as You Boot Your new drive from a USB or Firewire atachment - Going Well OK - Swap Your Physical Drives

I was running out of disk space on my 200GB drive
It took about 4 hours to migrate my old HDD to the new one, using the Firewire 800 interface of the external HDD enclosure you sell. 1F107-097-1.
The actual replacement of the drive in the MacBook Pro took about an hour or less.
The install went exactly as documented in the guide for the regular 750GB drive. Some additional information from my experience:
When the data migration to the new drive finished (a little less than 4 hours with your firewire 800/USB 2.0 case - I used the firewire connector) the access light was still flashing when I closed SuperDuper. I wasn't sure if the solid state drive portion of the drive was still destaging data to the disk. I left it run for about 30 minutes and then ejected the drive. Activity finally stopped.
2. The small cables at the front top of the HDD are routed through a channel to get to the drive. Put the small cable in first, with the larger, more heavily insulated cable on top. They need to be in the channel so they aren't smashed by the keyboard assembly.
3. There is a breather hole on the 750GBGB Hybrid drive that is right where the ribbon cable ends near the connectors. Be careful when resticking the ribbon cable, that it does not cover the breather hole on the top of the drive. Same goes when reinstalling the yellowish tape that holds the drive cables down.
4. When I booted for the first time, it took about 2 or 3 minutes of gray screen until the Apple logo came up. Then another couple minutes of gray screen until my desktop appeared. Be patient.
My MacBook Pro not only has much more disk space but runs much, much faster! The upgrade is very easy to do.

I needed more room on my hard drive due to a large music library, a large number of pictures and video, etc.
The repair went quickly and easily with no problems. I took advantage of having the laptop open to clean up dust with some canned air.
Keep anti-static bags from previous upgrades, they make great places to place sensitive equipment during a job.
