I'm selling my Macbook tomorrow (Snow Leopard). What's the best way for me to get everything off of it and then delete that stuff so the new owner has as clean a slate as possible. Do I just plug in a drive and turn on Time Machine? (Does that copy my software and everything else?) I'd prefer to get it off in such a way that I don't have to make my new Macbook Air be a mirror of that old machine--I'd like to pick and choose what I put on it and leave the rest backed up on the external hd. I don't believe I have the install discs any more so can't just reinstall the OS. Thank you!
I think I killed my wireless card... My macbook pro connects to wifi very sporadically. About half the time, I can be sitting three feet from the wireless router and no network will show up, but my housemates are able to detect the network rooms away. Is this fixable? [more inside]

Hi there, I need a machine to do some heavy raw image editing on Adobe Lightroom. I am debating whether to buy a new Macbook Pro 2.66Ghz i7, or a 2year old Mac Pro 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, which would be about half the price of the Macbook. Each have pros & cons for me in related to their form factor, but how would they compare in pure performance terms...? Thanks for any advice.

A few days ago, I woke up to the sound of my MacBook fan on full and a totally unresponsive UI (as in I couldn't even turn up the brightness to see the screen, which I'd dimmed overnight). I rebooted, and everything was fine, except the Airport menu bar item said "No Airport card is installed". I've booted from the previous day's backup, I've run System Profiler from the OS X install DVD, and I even replaced the Airport card with a new one (bought from eBay, fitted according to the instructions on iFixIt). All report that I don't have an Airport card. What next? [more inside]
