    Currently I have 32GB available.
    This is my MBP specs:

    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,3
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB
    Memory: 4 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: MBP53.00AC.B03
    SMC Version (system): 1.48f2
    Serial Number (system): W8005447642
    Hardware UUID: A4A02FEB-18C8-536D-B0FA-BF02E2E5FD0D
    Sudden Motion Sensor:
    State: Enabled

    I bought this like 2 weeks before new MBP came out, so I felt sad. Was the one that came out right after this one significantly better than this one? Also shouldn't the Apple store tell me that new one is going to come out in 2 weeks so I should wait for it?

    You should have 10 to 20 % of the HDD's capacity unused, 32GB out of 320GB is okay.

    It was better, but not significantly.

    No, as even the Apple Stores don't know.
