How do I find out how big my Hard drive is?

I know this is a really stupid question but I just can't find how big my hard drive is on my macbook!

Where do i look? In the about this mac section? Or is it in system preferences.

PLEASE help me!!!

Okay I've just opened it Thanks

But now I'm more confused

It says capacity 111.47 GB

Is this right?

Probably a 120GB drive. 111.47GB is the useable space.
