    I'm looking at purchasing a MacBook later, and keep switching back and forth.

    I love the black one, and will probably end up buying it. I have an iMac now with 250GB of space, and I doubt I'm using 50...

    I saw the black macbook has the same amount, how much of it do you find yourself actually using? What do you use it for?

    I have the BlackBook 2.4 250GB HDD...

    and I have 201GB available, after all my software, music, movies and the formatted & bundled software. I keep most of my music, movies and media/graphic projects on an external hard drive and transfer it as needed. My BlackBook is 2-days old! :cool:

    I only have a 60 GB hard drive and desperately need to buy myself an upgrade.

    i filled up the 40GB on my toshiba, wasn't too difficult. still not sure what the hell is taking up all that space, there's about 16GB of music, i can't imagine there's over 20GB of programs, photos, documents, etc.

    i'm using 29GB on my macbook, and i haven't moved my itunes library over yet. 6GB of TV and about 1.5GB of music, i have no freaking clue what the rest is!

    160 never gave me enough headroom so i'm saving for a 250g hd.i dont like external drives.

    If you create a boot camp partition you eat more, and also pictures + videos + music + documents >>250Gb isn't enough for my particular use.

    thanks but 350 would be overkill plus the price of it ....

    Me too. Its a constant battle for me to maximize my 60G hard drive. I need to start running windows for work, and I'm dreading how mush space that will eat up. I'm thinking about upgrading my HD when I have the $
