    I have a MBP 13" bought in 2010, I think i'm itchin' for a new retina 13" or 15"... however before I make the purchase I want to reboot my current MBP to factory settings and ensure all info are deleted. Can anyone please advise the best way to do this?
    Thanks in advance.

    What you're looking for is a clean reinstall of your OS, not a "reboot", which is simply restarting your computer. To make your thread easier to find for those browsing the forum for the same answers, you can change your thread title to something more descriptive. To do so, click the "Edit" button on your original post, then click "Go Advanced" and you will see where to edit the thread title.
