    My trusty 2011 MBP is slowly but surely being used more and more by the wife for her school work, reports etc etc etc.....
    Im currently saving for a new macbook or Air so a bit of advice needed, should i wipe this MBP and do a fresh install for her or just add her as another user to the MBP.??

    Disk space allowing, add her in as another user so your files are nicely separated away from hers. It is easy to delete content in a user account, so if your stuff are not in a dedicated user account, then simply create another admin account so that the first is ready for deletion.

    Thanks for that, there is a load of disk space so I've created her as a new user, and kept myself on there also;)
    Just have to decide now what laptop I'm going to replace with as I've realised the Air does not have a retina screen and i wanted one of those in my next upgrade....
