When you get a new MacBook Air 80 gb, with the drive formatted and a standard Leopard and iLife install, how much space is there left on the drive?

Mine says 56.86 GB.

I have put nothing on it yet. I'm trying to make up my mind if I want do a clean install.

I'm at 65G after the clean install instructions on the sticky.

I kept X11, got rid of iPhoto.

I also have yet to blast away that voice file and/or change the swap configuration.

I opted to do the install. It's working now. Then I'm going to follow more of the sage advice and slim my applications and get rid of the voices that I'm not going to use.

65 GB, great, thanks for the replies. It will help me determine if I can reasonably use a MacBook Air.
