    Poking around my new 13" i5 I noticed something.

    Finder says I have 156.85 GB of space free
    iStat nano says I have 141.76 GB free
    System Information says I have 152.21 GB free

    I have a 256 GB SSD. Anyone else reporting various free space??

    On an additional note, which one should I believe? I'm inclined to say Disk Utility / System Information is right...

    Restart and they should all read the same - it is to do with garbage collection I believe!
