    Question Reformat a MB Air?
    I'm replacing a nearly new MB Air running 10.8 and want to erase the hard drive before reselling it. In the past, my MBP's have had install discs, but they don't come with them anymore. Now what? Thank you.

    Boot to the Recovery partition by holding down the command + r keys as soon as you hear the Bong sound. Once in Recovery, enter Disk Utility and use it to erase the hard drive. Then, reinstall Mountain Lion from the Mac App store.
