How to move 500 SDD to a 1T SDD?

How to move from MacBook 1 SDD to MacBook 2 SDD

I guess I cold make a fresh backup from MB1 and restore that drive to MB2. But I need to carefully track any changes on MB1 while that drive is restoring to MB2.

Is this the best way, though?

I can repeat the process, I presume...

What do you suggest?

Can I use a cable connecting the machines?

Thanks

You can connect the two with an appropriate cable and use Apple's built-in Migration Assistant to move everything. Here are Apple's detailed instructions:

With a Cable you can boot one Macbook in Target Disk Mode (T key down at startup).
Then use SuperDuper to clone one drive to the other.
