having just set up my new beast I noticed that my HD was already down to about 680 gig. I found it odd that the pre installed software would amount to 70gig or so but assumed that imovie and idvd had so pretty big and thorough tute videos that I could easily delete. I ordered the 750gig HD on a 3.06 machine and expected it to be a little smaller than 750... BUT!!! here is the system profiler readout for my HD... Hitachi HDS721075KLA360: Capacity: 698.64 GB Model: Hitachi HDS721075KLA360 Revision: GK0KA9CA Serial Number: GTA204P8GKYV4F Native Command Queuing: Yes Queue Depth: 32 Removable Media: No Detachable Drive: No BSD Name: disk0 Mac OS 9 Drivers: No Partition Map Type: GPT (GUID Partition Table) S.M.A.R.T. status: Verified Volumes: Macintosh HD: Capacity: 698.32 GB Available: 669.1 GB Writable: Yes File System: Journaled HFS+ BSD Name: disk0s2 Mount Point: / What the buggers is going on here? Has apple stuffed up and put the wrong HD in my pute? I reckon so and if so then I got me some compensation coming... ANYBODY with the same BTO 750GIG HD machine out there? can you do a check for me? I will call apple in the morning as well.
