The picture above is a picture I took of my old computer via my iPhone. I am erasing the whole thing. I picked the 7 pass method, as per Wesley’s suggestions, and it will take about an hour for each pass. So I am erasing the computer completely seven times, I guess.
I got my Thunderbolt MacBook Pro just about 40 hours ago, transferred everything over about 30 hours ago and have been using this new machine for about 24 hours.
No major issues and I don’t think anything was lost in the transfer, so I am wiping the old one clean. I’ll then bring it to the Apple Store to be fixed up a bit and then sell it on eBay or Craigs List.
Feels weird to erase all that data – although I have it on several backups. 🙂
Good bye old Mac.
