    Ive decided to reformat my ibook, does anyone here have any advice about what I should do before formatting?
    and once I format, does that mean evrythign will be brand new again?


    hopefully..

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro (early 2011) 2,2 i7, 4 GB RAM, 750 GB HDD, 1 GB ATI 6750M, High-Res AntiGlare Screen
    i doubt that the iBook itself will be brand new :bone:
    - It's like - he was got - they'd just like. It was like so hush hush. They were so... quiet about it. And then the next thing you know...

    well macman helped me and my fonts are causing other problems so i just decided to reinstall

    in yhe ibook manual, it says, "reinstalling sotware" is that he same as reformating?
    all i do is just pop in the discs and hit install mac os x?
