I had 2.6 gig left on my hard drive. Guess I should have gotten a larger hard drive. I do have a PC desktop with 80 gig but that is down to 13 gig left. I am now getting into digital movies this will take a lot of space too. About 6 months ago I purchased an external hard drive for my desktop to backup all my digital pictures. So all my backups go on the external drive including my iBook stuff. But it's a pain pulling the desktop out unplug the firewire cable and hooking up the ibook. so I just ordered a 120 gig external hard drive for my iBook. I think I'll be okay for a while. Do you guys find that your running out of space on the 12" iBook?
