    When you bought your MBP how much space did you have available out of the box.

    My 80 gig hardrive has a capacity of 74.21 and I never checked how much was used when i bought it. Reason im asking is, I have 42.4 gigs left and I cant figure out where all that space went. I can account for 9 gigs worth of itunes music and videos, and maybe another 4 or so gigs of other stuff. What about the rest?

    How do I check if I have a HUGE plist file or something?

    93 capacity (100 gig my A$$). Then, Tiger itself took up space (an instant loss of almost 10 gigs!)

    Formatted drive capacities are always smaller than as what they're advertised.

    Don't forget iLife!

    iLife takes up about 20 GB, if I'm not mistaken.

    If you really want more space, there are some apps that remove the alternate languages and other options you'll never use (I believe it's called MonoLingual or something like that), or you could just reinstall Tiger and select those options...

    Oh yeah, and I got an 80 GB HD. The formatted capacity is 74.09 GB.
