    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Stick in the original OS X disk that came with it and do a fresh install.

    That'll do good enough unless someone wants to spend a couple of thousand to try to find stuff that hasn't been overwritten.
