Recently my department picked up a new Macbook Pro Retina in order to serve as the main host computer for running Adobe Connect meetings.
Long story short, it turns out my current older Macbook Pro is much better as the host computer for running the Adobe Connect meetings. For starters, it has both audio input and output which the retina does not, which the audio ports alone is an absolute necessity (need the in for the presenters mic, need the out so the presenter can hear participants), a firewire without needing Thunderbolt for the Digital Camera, an Ethernet port without again needing the Thunderbolt adapter, and the list goes on).
So I was asked if I would consider trading my Macbook Pro for the Retina.
As you could imagine, they did not really need to twist my arm.
The older Macbook Pro is setup with 2 separate partitions.
I need to completely wipe it out with a fresh install of Mountain Lion.
So basically, I am wondering the best way to do it.
My plan of attack is...
- Wipe Out Second Partition Completely (after backing it up of course).
- Merging the two partitions together into one original large partition.
- Installing Mountain Lion on the merged large partition fresh (this will be a department used Mac, so want all traces of my personal info erased completely)
Does anyone have a better way to do it?
