Hi,

 

I have a 13" macbook pro retina that I purchased this past April.  I have installed OS updates since then, so I have the latest updates.  I have a slew of apps (I know about deactivating everything and how to do that).  I just want to reset the Macbook so that whoever buys it will be able to set it up from scratch, as if like getting it new.  Macbooks do not come with OS discs any more, but, I've been told by Apple that the the firmware can connect over the internet and download the OS if necessary in case of an HD crash.

 

I am willing to purchase another version of Mountain Lion, but it seems like the license for this computer should be used/valid since I will not be using it, only the new buyer.

 

What is the simplest way to accomplish this?

 

Thanks


MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)
