    Check the bottom left of those splash screens carefully as you go through them. There's usually a button called 'customise' or 'options'. I forget which.

    Okay, standard question: why do you want to reinstall OSX on a brand new MacBook?

    It makes a lot more sense to remove the software you don't want. Most sensible is to just leave it alone. The OP has ample free space on his brand new machine. More than a few newbies return to this and other Mac fan forums with questions about restoring the software they only recently removed. If after he has some experience with the OS under his built, then he should revisit this issue.

    Exactly the points I would make. Mass storage is so cheap these days. Why get rid of anything before you know for certain that you'll never need it again?
