    I just purchased a new 2011 MBA last month and absolutely love it!

    Now I am going to sell my 2011 Mac Mini (came with Lion pre-installed, No Drive, No Disks)

    How do I prep this for sale ?

    If I do an internet recovery and delete my disk 1st, will the person who buys it still get the apple apps ?

    Apple does not have this process laid out well.

    Any advice appreciated !

    That's for pre-2011 Mac's.

    The 2011 Mac Mini has no DVD with the OS and no optical drive.


    I've sold several macs that way.

    The new Macs I am unclear best approach and if the Apple apps reinstall or not

    you need to get your HD wiped. They will still get Lion, and they will get the Apple apps like iMovie, iPhoto, Ect.

    If you don' know how to wipe it, you can just bring it to the apple store. They wiped my macbook for free, and downloaded lion back on it. :D

    The iLife Apps.

    GarageBand, iPhoto etc....

    They would already have been given to my Apple ID with the new Mac.

    If they're tied to your Apple ID, I'm not sure what the procedure is for making sure the buyer can get them.
