    So it isnt necessary to reset this unless you have a problem or the hardware requires it?
    I read the article looks good.

    Yes...pretty much no need to reset the PRAM if you're not having a problem (at least I've never reset the PRAM when everything was working fine).

    If everything is working fine, leave it be. Especially memory, PRAM and PMU and also firmware.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
