    Hey guys. I have 2011 mbp and i'm trying to sell it online...but i realized that i need to delete my main login account before selling it? I had to preinstall stuff but..not sure how i would delete it so that the buyer can make his main login account? For example: I reinstalled the osx and it asked me to make my password account. So in order to install some programs, I had to make my account. Any help?

    While logged in to your account go to System Prefs and in the Users & Groups pane make a new admin account for the new owner to use. Now logout of your account and login to the new one you just made. From within the new account fo back to Users & Groups and delete your old account.
