Hi,
I was just wondering how much space the 10.8 dev preview takes up once installed. 10GB? Less? More?
It would be interesting to compare it with Snow Leopard or Lion to see where Mountain Lion fattened up or slimmed down.
I haven't found any posts saying how big 10.8 is.

Thanks,
MacDonuldz

Not to get too off topic, but I see you only have 40Gb drive. I am guessing its an SSD? If so, would you mind telling me what brand if you like it?

It's a VM on an external HDD.
I use a Vertex 2 SSD in my 2007 iMac and a Vertex 3 in my 2009 MBP. The Vertex 2 is over a year old and has been in my MBP until I bought the Vertex 3. I am satisfied with their performances.

I try not to brag about how big it is.

Cool, thanks for letting me know!
