    Hey everyone,

    My new uni-MBP came today and I am planning on giving my old MBP to my younger brother. What is the fastest and most efficient way to wipe my old Mac so that nothing is left on it except Leopard, obviously? Nothing useful came up searching, just a lot of crap.

    Thanks guys.

    Have you looked into Disk Utility to erase the drive?

    Thats not a bad idea. It should erase everything, right?

    Yes, you can zero out the drive for added protection if you're worried about your brother stealing your info.

    I can't positively say whether or not that will erase OSX as well but if you have your install disk, that shouldnt be a problem.

    I'm in the same place with my MBP and lost my install disc a long time ago.
