How to change apple id registered on mac

Hi guys

when i ran the initial set-up of my alu macbook, it asked for an Apple ID. Is there a way to change this ID now because my account was hacked and i want to change it.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Try re-registering your mac with a new apple id.

I set mine up before I had MobileMe and now I am doomed with my old Apple ID. I hope I can change it when I get home.

Heh heh I like my old Apple ID... x@mac.com still sounds slightly more fun than x@me.com

If you enter in new details it'll ask you to confirm, and you can close your old account from within that one.
