Buying a replacement SSD for MacBook Air 5,2. Best disk cloning tool to get the job done?

I need to upsize the SSD on my MacBook Air 5,2 (mid 2012). I've cloned a lot of Windows machines but never a Mac.

Presumably the Acronis True Image 2013 that I have won't work. Let me know if I'm wrong.
Assuming Acronis is not a viable option, what product should I use: Carbon Copy Cloner? Time Machine? Disk Utility native to OS X?

I like SuperDuper

Works great and it's free if you are just cloning a drive.  I have been using it for years.

SuperDuper! and Carbon Copy Cloner are the best choices CCC can deal with the Recover Partition.
