Hey guys. I have a late 2008 Aluminum Macbook. Upgraded to 8gb of RAM, and of course, OS Lion.

Now Ive tired to look all over and cant find a real answer.

Can I, and How do I, wipe my entire HD and keep Lion? I know I will get more money with lion, not Snow Leopard. Since I've already done it, I dont want the buyer to spend another $29.

If anyone was wondering, Im going to be buying a 13 inch air. ;)

Thanks!

I would redownload Lion from the app store and put it on a DVD or flash drive and then wipe and reinstall from that.

Hi,
it depends how fast is your internet connection since the download is approx. 4GBs.
And when you're ready to re-install copy the 'Lion Installer App.' to some safe place also,
since it'll disappear from your 'Applications' folder after install (so you don't have to download again next time you need to install).
(Apple following the Winworld more & more...).
