    How do I completely erase my macbook as if I just got it new?
    Everything gone.

    I want it to be as if I were just opening the box for the first time.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know why you would want to do that but if you really want to start over use your install DVD to boot the machine. Select Disk Utility, Erase the HDD, and reinstall OS X.

    I'm 14, so I'm not worried about any information. I can restore anything too important (i.e. music, videos, pictures) via time machine.
