    10GB, if you use Monolingual you can remove unused languages if you haven't deselected them during the installation. You can also remove the printer drivers after the installation or during it. And you can remove unused iLife apps and its supporting files, Garage Band uses 2GB for audio samples.

    There is also MRoogle to look for dozens of similar threads.
