    See http://macmost.com/preparing-your-mac-for-resale.html
    This of course applies to if you have an older Mac, running Snow Leopard or before. Since you are selling it, maybe this is the case.
    If you are using a newer Mac, one that came with Lion installed when you bought it, then it gets tricky. You don’t have discs to use to wipe and re-install the OS on the drive.
    You’ll probably need to use the special recovery partition to perform those two tasks.
