replacing HD with SSD

What is the most efficient way to replace the standard 160GB mechanical HD with a 120GB SSD without losing any of the features inherent in the stock version of the notebook?

Re: replacing HD with SSD

when you say features, do you mean the recovery partition and the Lenovo specific softwares?

If that is the case, you are probably better off with a clean install (since you are moving from platter to ssd) using a set of Lenovo recovery media.
