    I just got my new mbp 2.6 200gb hd, after having to get my first one replaced.

    however, as of now i have mac office "student teacher ver" and my logitech mouse driver installed. I am about to install wow and when im finished I should have about 154-155gigs of space left.

    My hd says 185gigs available with just osx installed?

    Does this sound about right? or should i have more space

    I think my first mbp had more space on the HD. I had about 158 after my wow downloads.

    Dont buy into the GB game a 200 GB HD does not yield 200GBs of usable space. The 185 is correct

    consider yourself lucky. Mine said I had 167GB left right out of the box. But I'm not complaining.

    As zepharus just stated it's something to with the way HD manufactures calculate GB,when i installed my

    In my imagination
    When i got my 750 Seagate way back when I had about 690GB or something... I was looking very hard for that missing 60GB.

    If you start having problems, remove the Logitech driver... just as an in case it happens.

    no dude, mine has about 167gb out the box. the 185 I was talking about is the entire drive without osx installed.

    ours are pretty much the same, my previous had about maybe 2 or 3 more.

    That sounds about right.

    you could remove the languages, printer drivers, etc.
