If you are thinking of buying a new Apple device, such as the Macbook Pro, there is also the question of what to do with the computer you already own. Chances are you won't want to just toss it out, especially as it can still be of value to somebody else.

For those who decide to sell their old laptop or give it away to a friend or family member, there are certain steps you will want to take to ensure that it's wiped clean of anything important first and that all of your personal files been removed.

Here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Complete any software updates: If there are updates pending for essential apps on your computer, make sure to download and install them. This will make it much easier for the next person to run these same programs.
  • Move your files: If there are certain things on your laptop that you want to keep, be sure to transfer them to an external hard drive. This will allow you to clear the storage space off your old computer, and provide a temporary place to keep your files before putting them on your new computer.
  • Sign out of iCloud: Doing this will prevent the laptop's next owner from being able to access your account and any personal information that goes along with it. This is one of the most important steps in clearing your computer, though this should be the final step. {if this is the last step, probably makes more sense to move to the end of the list}
