    You did empty your trash didn't you?

    Remove unwanted applications? Movies? Get a bigger hard drive, get an external drive?

    I've always found going through my applications folder found some MBs - especially utilities.
    Check your iTunes folder - artwork (delete them - just checked mine and it's 26 MB)
    25 MB here and there ad up.

    Oh yeah, empty trash. ;)

    Forgot, printer extensions and saved games...

    I assume you meant that you are running really low on drive space. If you have cleaned up your drive and are still looking for more things to delete.... it is time to get a bigger drive.

    If you meant that you are running low on memory, deleting stuff off the computer is not going to make any difference. Memory and drive space is too different things. If you meant memory, then you need to upgrade the memory in your computer.
