    Hi all,

    I'm getting my MacBook unibody soon and I know I will be very protective of it :eek:

    Do any of you have 'Guest' accounts if your friends want to use it so they don't mess and go through all your stuff?


    Weird question, I know. Just wanted to see if anyone else is doing it.

    I have a 'visitor' account which I use when we have overnight guests who don't bring their own computers. It's setup with limited privilege.

    You can enable fast user switching.

    You can always delete the guest account if people mess it up. Just make it non-admin.

    You can always turn on the built in guest account. Every time the user logs off of the guest account, its deleted and clean for the next log in.
