    I'm selling my iMac simply because it sits and collects dust lol Thing is, I posted it on craigslist for 1300 (yeah for a new one and mine is just a core duo), but I only did because I plan on letting whoever buys it keep the programs on it; All of Adobe CS5, Animation software: Maya, and all of Office for Mac, and more (tons of movies). Someone is interested so I just want to get some answers on what I do to wipe out all of my personal information but keep the applications.... I want everything wiped but the apps and movies. How do I do that? (I don't want to play around on it and f something up lol

    I would do a factory reset.. you might forghet some passwords or something also most people that are ion craigslist don't value software or movies so you won't get much more for having a computer loaded with software.. I sold my 24" 2008 imac for $1000 not too long ago (posted it at $1200) but yea as far as the personal info I would do a fresh instal of the OS and a HDD wipe.
