    I'm selling my old MacBook 2007 (aww) and getting a new MBP 2011 (YAY!) Well I want to know if my data is save, this is a little easy because I just replaced my old hard drive with a brand new one. But data from websites, like passwords and stuff, are they save or should I change them once the computer is out of my hands? I haven't saved any passwords on keychains or anything.

    In the mean time of selling it I need do to do some projects on Photoshop. If I just delete Photoshop and the files I make, is that sufficient? Thanks for you help guys!

    After formatting and installing the OS, is there any way to install iLife without setting up a User Account?

    I figure if you sell on your Mac you should probably hand on the box, disks & anything else that came with it that you no longer need.

    The original disks will have the old version of iLife that came with the Mac

    I am giving the disks but a family is buying as their first Mac and I want them to have the new Mac experience! However, when reinstalling OS, iLife isn't automatically installed!
