The RAM and SSD are both compatible.

Good choice of SSD. Reliable and decent speed. In Fact what I use in two computers Plus a larger one of the same series in my Desktop.

One thought, the one you linked to has a 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter and cables you wouldn't need in your laptop. You could save some money buying the OEM version as it is going into a laptop.

One other stray thought, you could look at Samsung SSDs too. Both Samsung and Intel have toolboxes you can download and the Intel site also has software for drive cloning available free of charge.

You would need a external SATA laptop case and software. For example Intel has software you can download to clone to one of their SSDs, Western Digital and Seagate likewise. Their software only works with their branded drives.

I believe Norton Ghost has a function to transfer over to another hard drive.

Norton Ghost should work. I have an Intel SSD and cloned my old drive, but I used Intel's program which was extremely easy.

I might try that transfer function on Norton Ghost and see how that goes. Acronis is crap in my opinion.

So if I bought the above SSD, then I could use the intel software right? Would I copy my current hard drive to an external HDD.

Yes, if you buy an Intel SSD, their Data Migration Software can copy the entire contents over to your new drive. Note, if you have an Nvidia-based board, which if become more rare these days, thankfully, you may have issues with other Intel software being able to work properly with the drive. Apparently, Nforce drivers confuses the software. It's easy to get around, though.

This is the laptop. Does it have that problem?

Your laptop does not use Nvidia chipset.
