I just purchased a new stock Macbook (posting on it right now. The side towards battery gets pretty toasty, but doesn't seem to show any signs of a whine or moo). So supposedly, it's a 60 GB harddrive. I understand that with the formatting and whatnot, it's more like 55 GB or so when I first boot up the computer. But after a simple software update, and Microsoft Office install, I'm down to approximately 37 GB. Lets say that my Office + Updates took 1 GB of harddisk space....that would only leave me at approximately 38/55 GB. Can anyone explain why this is so, or if it's even normal? iLife cannot possibly bite out 15 GB of HDD space could it? And if so, how would I go about removing those programs (quite new to the OSX world). Thanks a bunch.
