    I heard in the WWDC keynote that Lion would be about 4GB in size. But now people are saying 6GB?

    What exactly is the truth here?

    Thanks, I thought so. Someone on here said it was now 6GB but I wasn't so sure. It's amazing how quickly mistruth spreads on these forums.

    Let's say I have 100GB remaining on my hard drive. When I download and install Lion, will I have 96GB remaining or does it remove the installer and the SL files - leaving me with roughly 100GB (or whatever the file size difference is between SL and Lion)?

    You will have a little less than 100GB left, due to Lion being slightly bigger than Snow Leopard. The installer does remove itself as well as the old system.

    Their exact words were abround 4gb to download, which means it could be 3.xx or 4.xx.
