MBA HDD question (not about HDD vs. SSD)

    I am very curious to know how much AVAILABLE disk space is on the MBA HDD model right out of the box. This will help me make a decision on whether or not there is enough storage space to get everything on that I want to and still have room for growth.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Mine had a little over 60gb I think...I've installed office2008 and now its at 57gb space available and did the monolingual thing.

    Yeah, it was right around 60. I re-installed OS-X, and didn't install some printer drivers and such, which saved me about 3-4 GB.

    After I installed what I needed (iWork, Paralelles/Win XP, Slingplayer, Notebook, iDisk sync), I'm right at 40GP available.

    My Win XP virtual disk takes up 14GB of the used space. I'd cut that down if I didn't have to re-install my Windows programs afterward...
