SSD Migration x2

I have a project coming up which involves removing an Intel 320 ssd from a workstation and putting it into a lenovo laptop. The workstation will be getting a new Intel 520 (little nervous about this b/c the 320 is very stable but I want to take advantage of the 520 6gb speeds). I plan to migrate os, etc. to both hard drives - the current 320 to the new 520 and then the current lenovo hd to the "old" 320.

The first part seems straight forward. My question is; when migrating the lenovo to the 320 is there anything extra I should do, i.e. delete all information or somehow 'wipe the drive clean' or will this be taken care automatically when I migrate? I am pretty swapping drives like this can be done safely but just need a little guidance on procedure.

I've got xp pro on both systems, upgrading soon. Will use Intel's migration tools. Any help greatly appreciated.

Just follow your cloning applications instructions and you'll be fine.
