I just purchased the i5/16/512GB 2018 Mini and have been playing around with it for a week or so. After testing bootcamp and removing it, then clean installing MacOS again, I am seeing 499.96GB available in the storage details and Disc Utility. I seem to remember this being a nice clean 500GB number previously, which is driving my OCD crazy ;)

Can any 512GB model owners confirm what their usable storage is showing? Thanks!

The top level is this. but selecting the actual apfs volume is the same.

On my iMac Pro, Boot Camp created a mini partition for the installer. At the end, it erases it but doesn’t actually really remove it. I had to manually remove the partition myself. Try to show all volumes in Disk Utility, and click on the actual hard drive itself, do you just get one partition in the pie chart or do you get several?
