I just bought a new Macbook and I want to upgrade the HD. But instead of reinstalling the OS, I thought about cloning my current HD. Can anyone give me some advice as to how to clone a HD on a Macbook and expand the partition on the new HD to incorporate the extra space?

Thanks.

Carbon Copy Cloner is a good one too.

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
