    I'm selling my late 2007 15" MBP and I want to leave some of the software that's on there to justify my price tag. However, I will be doing a clean install of Snow Leopard on it to erase all my information and account, but how do I preinstall some of the software so that when the new guy gets it, he also has the software that I chose to put on there as a sort of bonus?

    Thanks

    Make an administrator account with a blank password or something.

    After clean installing SL, you can install packages from other CDs. I did just that to have iLife from my MBP CD after clean installing SL. For instance, insert the CD that came with your hardware, right-click to open in Finder. From there as I recall everything was logically named & located.

    Don't forget to send with the licensed original discs also otherwise it would seem like a pretty odd way to increase the price.
