Simple ASA 55xx to 55xx-X upgrade question

I have an older model ASA 5500-series and I've purchased a new 5555-X.  If they are both at roughly the same up-to-date software version, can I simply copy the config from the old ASA to the new one?

I know that I will possibly have to make minor changes such as changing the interface names (ethernet or fa to gi) but are there any significant command structure changes that would cause problems?  (problems caused specifically by moving from a 55xx to a 55xx-X)?

It really depends what you

It really depends what you have configured and what version you are running on the old ASA compaired to the new one.  For example, is the old one running 9.1 and the new one running 9.2?

If you don't have any thing very specific or special configured for your network, ie. you just have ACL, Objects / object-groups, NAT etc. then you will be fine with copying the configuration straight over with possibly a few minor changes (as you have already mentioned).
