    hi, I just bought 2016 15 MBP TB
    I tried it in my local store to see the machine is working properly.
    but because I'm in a hurry I didn't put in my iCloud and user data .
    now I'm home I want to start a fresh from scratch.
    can someone help me how ?
    cause previously on my 2009 MBP I use the OS X CD that. comes with it.
    but now this 2016 MBP, no CD, so I don't know how to,
    so can anybody guide me ?
    thank you so much.

    anyway, this MBP is very very good, I really didn't regret getting it,
    the machine is beautiful, and the screen ??? no word to describe, just see one for yourself then you'll know what I mean.

    have a nice day guys...

    Just follow the steps at this link and you will be all set.

    Only thing is this will not reinstall the iWorks and iLife apps that come with it from the factory. You will need to reinstall those from the App Store using the App Store application.

    Why do you need to start from scratch? You could just go in, create your own account and install your apps and data OR use TimeMachine to restore from your 2009 MBP.
