Refurbed Mac & O/S question

Hi

After reading all the good news stories of people getting good deals and kit from the apple refurb store, I think I’m going to join the Mac club and buy from there.

One question I had is will apple have reinstalled the O/S - cleared previous users settings data etc or will I have to do that?

Is re-installing the same as on a PC? bung the disc in and let it do its thing?

Any other things to watch out for on refurbs?

All this Mac stuff is new to me (well since my Apple LC days - if any one remembers them)

Thanks

the majority of refurbs are usually cancelled orders or prior generation which they class as 'refurb' and then of course actual refurbs but most I've seen are of the first two

any more questions do fire away! :thumbsup:
