    I want to see how extreme you guys are going.
    Send a picture of the total size of your Mac, how clean you keep it.

    My early-2011 13" Macbook Pro is running at 297.81 GB free. The only user file above 1 MB is pictures, everything else is stored on my late-2009 21" 1TB iMac via. Wi-Fi.

    Hell, even this screenshot itself is deleted from the computer after being uploaded to Photobucket.

    Anyone with an Apple I or II booted to the most basic program made for it will have anyone beat. Although the I is earlier many more programs were made for the II or II plus even that may take up less memory than for the I.

    Going by the Macintosh criteria then someone booted by floppy to System .97 with no extra documents and any read me files deleted.

    iSad. :(

    Finally, an iMac for the totally blind.

    I recommend Alex, the new voice for Leopard. ;)

    I pwn you all with my Macintosh Classic. Good luck getting your OSX Macs down to a few megabytes of data :D

    78.61 GB free on a 483.06GB disk. I travel and work in various locations too much to deal with having everything on an external drive. I have a Time Capsule backup, and most important things are manually backed up onto separate drives. So I'm not worried about losing data.

    140,25GB free on a 250GB. This may change soon, though: I want to install a 40GB SSD for the system and keep the HDD for files. In the process, I will probably clean some stuff.

    With Steve's passing, all my Macs are empty. Oh so empty. <sigh>

    1.56TB free out of 8TB (4x2TB drives in my MacPro).

    That's quite a lot of space free... but I did just swap out a 600GB for a 2TB.

    What have you got on there, the library of Congress??

    As smart as Siri. :)

    I can't seem to get my Macbook Pro down back below 300 GB, it sucks. I really have no idea how to get it back down that low, how Apple even could. I've only downloaded about 1.2 GBs of Applications. :(
