    I think someone posted that there was 48GB free on the 64GB SSD.

    But how much free space is there left on the 128GB & 256GB?

    I'm buying the 13" MBA as a main computer and I need to know how much free space there will be left on both SSD options. :)

    Well do the math.
    If the 64GB model has a foot print of 16gb, the odds are high that the other model will use 16gb, leaving you with around 112 for the 128gb and 240 with the larger SSD

    Okay - I posted this for people with the same amount of braincells as me (not much)

    Doh! Sorry - should have done the math. Bit of a first timer as you can tell. :)

    just take 64GB and do 64*1000*1000*1000

    after that....divide it by 1024*1024*1024. That should tell you how much hard drive space you have.

    Then subtract the applications.

    After loading all the SW I use and any data I use on a regular basis. I still have 178.5 GB free. I put my iTunes library and any data not used on a regular basis on to a 1 TB Western Digital My Passport SE USB drive. The drive is very small and has great performance.
