    This is my first post from my refurb 2.53 MBP. I know some people here always do clean installs as soon as they get any new computer. Should I? What are the real benefits? And does the fact mine is a refurb make a difference?

    Just a matter of preference
    I have never seen the need

    Being a refurb will have no bearing on it

    Some just like to start "fresh"
    To each his/her own

    I don't think it is necessary unless you are experiencing problems
