    As above, does the size of the hard drive and the storage space used in the hard drive slow a Mac down after it gets more full?

    For example, if I am using 150GB of a 160GB hard drive, would this slow it down compared with being only 70GB filled?

    You can only notice a slowdown with 10 or fewer gibibytes free, as you said.

    It's a... moderately arbitrary line, but before that, there really is no noticeable slowdown.
