Some come with a kit including Norton Ghost, and an adapter cable so you can connect the ssd externally to a usb port. So all you would need is the cable and cloning software.

The kits I was looking at had these in a bundle - but doesn't look like they are still available - so will have to locate a cable myself. Though I have a few sata to usb cables I can try first.

One other thing that may be included is a small adapter plate as some drives are thinner than the standard 2.5".
