    I have a macbook pro, but i want to sell it.


    When i get a buyer I obviously want it clean first.
    Is there an easy way to reformat?
    Can I just create a new root account or something and delete my profile?

    What is the best way to go about this.

    I am pretty sure i lost those...should I just dl a retail version of my os??

    What does the mac OS use for serial #s or copy protection? Do embedded serials do it? IS it worth upgrading to the new OS? I have Mac OS X 10.5.6.

    No embedded serial #s. Just restart your computer with the disc in drive, hold down C and erase the drive.
