I've got to return my old MB Pro to the company.

A while back, when I turned in my iPad, I found a command that did a complete reset, wiping out my userid, and all my files
and updating the OS and applications to the factory defaults.

Is there a similar thing for OS-X?

I re-install the OS, doing a clean install. Then I run a security erase of the free space of the hard drive via Disk Utility.
