Cisco 3560X replacing 3560

I'm going to be replacing some Cisco 3560 Switches next month.  Will I be able to load the config from the old switches onto the new switches and have them be "plug and play"?  Or should I plan on configuring all the switches manually?  I'm doing the project planning and I'm trying to figure out how much time this is going to take.

Regards,

Dave

no manual configuration needed.
just download current configuration from running switches and upload that on the new switch.
check the configuration of new switch. if configuration ok just plug and play.

That depends.
If you are going from 10/100 to 10/100/1000 then the interface names are different, so you cannot copy/paste.
Changing hardware is a good time to step back and look at the current config and make sure it is the most appropriate for the ongoing operations, not just copied over what has been cobbled together over the past few years... IMHO...
