Apricorn makes a kit for just this purpose as long as the new drive is SATA. You can clone HDD to HDD or HDD to SDD or SDD to SDD with this Apricorn SATA Wire kit
and the included EZ Gig software. It actually came bundled with Crucial M4 SSDs when they first hit the market. It says it works for laptops, but it works for any system with USB ports and any SATA drives.
