So i've finally stopped debating with myself and got myself a 250 GB Samsung EVO 840.

I cloned everything to the SSD except for the Users folder because it is too large.

So far all is good and the machine boots up fast and nice but i'm having issues migrating all my settings.

Migration assistant keeps crashing and there seems to be no way i can migrate my iTunes, Mail, etc.

Can anybody help me out?

If you cloned with CCC or SuperDuper, migration is not needed - all settings were cloned.
The only thing you might have a problem with is linking your Users folder and that should not be a big deal.
