I'm going to be selling my MacBook Pro and would like to repare it to sell. I realize I can just wipe it clean and reinstall OSX, but I'd like to leave the software I have on it for the buyer.
How do I wipe all traces of my personal information and logins but keep the installed software. Can I change the name on the admin account?
I basically just don't want them to somehow get my logins to sites andthen find my credit card info, etc.

I would wipe the disk clean and re-install the OS. If you want to the buyer to has the installed software. Just provide the media that the software came on.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

Or you could take all of the software you want, put it on an outside source, and then wipe/reinstall OSX.
