Which of these options would be the best way to upgrade the hard drive in my Macbook?

1. Put the new drive in an external enclosure, clone my original drive with SuperDuper!, install the new drive.

2. Install the new drive, install OS X, use migration assistant to transfer programs/files.

3. Put the new drive in an enclosure, boot to that drive, install OS X, use migration assistant, then swap the drives.

Option 1 seems the easiest, but is there an advantage to doing a clean install of OS X?
