    Now that you're all set up, how much space do you have left?

    256GB Macbook Air
    75GB Free after transferring my essentials

    I originally got a 128GB but found it too difficult and time consuming to trim down my files so I got 256GB and am now very comfortable and with so much space I'm even considering Boot Camp Windows7.

    128GB Drive. 82GB free.

    All my music that I need with me is on my phone, and all my other media is on my iMac as my main hub.

    All I have loaded on right now are my Apps for school and a couple games. WoW is massive!

    76 GB on a 128GB SSD.

    I am running Adobe CS3 Design Premium, Aperture, BBEdit, Office 2011 as the bigger programs.

    My iTunes library is kept on an external NAS...

    128GB Macbook Air.

    85.62GB free out of 120.47GB

    I've only installed some applications and a couple games. I still have a couple more apps to install which are hefty (maybe 5-7 more GB of apps). I may have 1GB of music (not a lot), and maybe 20GB worth of movies I might keep on the Air at a given time.

    I've found that I stick with photoshop on my desktop PC, so large picture files aren't on my Air anyways. I installed Aperture just for the heck of it despite the fact that I use Photoshop CS5 -- I just wanted to see what Aperture is like (I haven't used it yet).

    I really don't need a lot of storage space.

    75GB left on my 128GB Air.

    I still have quite a bit of software to install, including CS5.

    I restored onto my 128GB from a time machine backup of my iMac... I only transferred my Music and Applications, as my Documents and Photos were too large (I would have needed another 200GB). Right now I have like ~10GB left =(

    Oh, and when I check out my /About This Mac/Storage it says I have 72.37GB worth of 'Other' files... I'm still trying to figure out what all that is. My Applications folder tells me 8.7GB and my Downloads folder is 14.2GB. So wtf that other 50GB is, I have no idea O_O

    Mostly just basic stuff on there. School starts in 2 weeks and i'll really start using the air more as i won't be home nearly as much.

    I am looking at getting one of the new MBAs with a 128gb drive.

    I was wondering if anyone has one and could tell me how much of the 128gb was left when it was first out of the box with Lion installed and nothing else?

    I have an 11" MBA with 256 GB drive, and I'm going to have ~50 GB remaining once I transfer all my stuff over. :eek:

    I'm not used to needing/using an external HD for anything other than backing up, so I suppose the solution for my lack of space is to remove some of the movies that I thought I "needed" to have on my system at all times. ;)

    146.67 GB free out of 250.14GB.

    Everything has been installed and is good to go. All that free space is now gravy.
