    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.

    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.
