I've had my MacBook Pro for about 5 years and I've already cleared as much out. No movies, and I'm only showing I have 27 free gigs left.

I do have about 2008 images in iPhoto, but I've had several thousand images before even in raw and it didn't take up that much space. What gives?

Anyone have any suggestions?
