Really good and easy to follow guide!
A couple of gotchas are worth mentioning when cloning your drive:
The Carbon Copy Cloner website has some useful hints on applications that behave differently, DropBox for example, when you have cloned your drive.
It's also worth mentioning, that Office 2011 for Mac will ask you to reenter your product key when running off the cloned disk, and that you may not be able to do that, since the key is already registered on "another" computer a.k.a. the original disk.
I had problems booting from the cloned drive initially, when it was still attached via USB to my Macbook Pro. Switching to a different USB port on the Mac solved that.
