    I was just noticing on my new macbook pro that my 320 GB Hard drive is only 298 GB after its initial formatting from Apple. I know its supposed to vary, but is it that common to loose 20 GB of hard drive space?

    Ugh... Just install Snow Leopard and forget this ever happened.

    Yes. This is normal. In Snow Leopard, this was changed and now it is the actual size. You don't gain or lose any disk space, just how the OS codes the data.
