    I just bought a 13 inch" 2.7 ghz, 8gb RAM, 256 SSD MBP. I got it operating and was running 4 non-intensive apps. I think they were Safari, Disk Utility, Mail and Calendar or something like that. Then i get this message saying I have to force quit applications because there isn't enough space on my boot disk.

    This is when I had put nothing on there, only pre installed apps. My computer says i have used 60gb when I definitely haven't and then has a meltdown and I have to turn it on and off. When i reboot everything is normal and Disk Utility says I have only used 20gb of space. Should I get a replacement or keep on using it as it seems to be working fine now. It seems really odd to have such a big problem 20 minutes into use.

    Also, can they give me some sort of compensation (second faulty mac in a row).

    Thanks lots for the help!

    Try taking it back and hopefully you'll get a compensation.

    Sounds like some sort of hiccup, if it's not persistent then don't worry about it. As far as compensation, not really. You could opt for a refund of the money you put out for the machine. I have heard of people being offered a small gift like a gift card or something for their troubles (not sure how accurate that is) but it doesn't seem like your situation would warrant anything like that.

    Yeah, I'm just a bit worried because that was a pretty big issue. The bad side of SSD??? I don't want to wait another week for another one to come in if I get it replaced but I also don't want it to play up after my 14 refund days.

    I understand. Your best bet is to take it in and see what they have to say about it.
