    I am stuck with a dilemma, I have a 13" Early 2011 MBP that has 8 gigs of memory, and a 750 GB Momentus Hybrid Drive. I also have a 15" rMBP, so I don't need both. Time to get rid of the 13" MBP.

    A few questions:

    Is it better to wipe the original 320 gb hard drive 7x and then reinsert? If so, how am I to load ML? Or should it go back to SL?

    I am not sure if the Momentus drive because of its hybrid nature should be wiped 7x, or if that would increase the value.

    I personally would put the original hard drive and install Snow leopard on it. Do a normal Erase, 7x would take forever.
