    I'm planning on buying the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, and in the process will be selling off my old unibody MacBook and polycarbonate MacBook.

    Naturally, I'm planning on doing a clean install. But, you know when you buy a new Mac, and you get that interactive "Welcome" video and then set up your own account? Is it possible to recreate that so that the person who buys the computer can set up their own account?

    Otherwise, how can I set up a new installation of Mac OS X w/o filling in any of the information?

    10.5: How to reset Leopard back to the Setup Assistant

    You can do a clean install, setup a "temp" user, and do all the updates. Then follow the procedure. After, it's ok to test it by starting up - as long as you quit the installer before doing anything, it'll play the opening movie just like new.

    If you don't want to install any updates, you can shut down the system when the Setup Assistant launches by pressing Cmd-Shift-Q. Be sure to eject the install DVD :)
