    I have decided to sell my MBP to some one i know
    Here is a question to you guys, I have 2009 MBP 13inch, recently i have installed lion in it, while selling the laptop should i sell it just like that, by creating a new user and deleting all my stuff?
    Is there any other way which is best.

    If i were you. I would do a fresh install of lion, erasing everything. and sell it that way.Let the new owner set it up with there own info.

    Just to add onto that...

    I would also back up everything (your personal files) just in case you need them. Your purchases should be saved on your Apple account if you ever need them in the future.

    Then I would make a bootable Lion disk, if you know how, boot from it, format the entire drive, and install Lion on it (shutting it off once you get to the Welcome to OS X screen with all the languages and such, after it's done installing.).
