Move hard disk from one Lenovo computer to another? Is it likely to work?

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a Lenovo ThinkPad x220 and have ordered a Lenovo T430s. Ideally I'd like to move the SSD (running 12.04) from the x220 to the new machine, rather than installing the OS on the new one and updating apps and restoring Home directory. Is it likely to work if I just put the current drive in the new machine? (HowTos)
