    I got my powerbook the new model `1.5 and had to open it in the can and didnt have internet to register and the file that it puts in documents is gone so how do I go about re registering the laptop again?

    You really don't have to register. Nothing happens if you don't (unlike the Windows world where Microsoft will shut you down for not registering.)

    Can you explain what you mean by this? I'm not sure I follow.

    You can wipe the hard drive and do a fresh install of the operating system. No traces of the previous owner's files will be left. You do *not* need to call Apple. Registration is an entirely optional thing with Apple.

    When you first try to "register" an Apple computer and the computer can't find an open internet connection to send the data - it will create (what looks like) an alias to the registration program in your Documents folder that you can open to finish the registraton at a later time.

    Most people just throw it in the trash. No worries.
