Out with the old...

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I have a 27-inch 2011 iMac run­ning Lion and am about to or­der the new Retina iMac. Will Migration As­sis­tant trans­fer over soft­ware such as Of­fice for Mac and Par­al­lels 9 with Win­dows 7? How should I erase and re­set my old iMac ready for re­sale? Martin Tuck Migration As­sis­tant (or Setup As­sis­tant) copies all your apps, in­clud­ing Of­fice and Par­al­lels. Your vir­tual ma­chines (which con­tain your Win­dows apps) are in the Par­al­lels folder within Doc­u­ments, so they will be pain­lessly copied too. Be­fore sell­ing, deau­tho­rise the iMac from iTunes, sign out of iCloud, and read sup­port.ap­ple. com/en-us/HT201065. Restart with ç+R held, open Disk Util­ity and re­for­mat your startup disk. Quit Disk Util­ity, re­in­stall OS X us­ing the Re­cov­ery Disk wiz­ard.
