    There is no such thing as an 800GB hard drive. You have a 500GB hard drive, and actual capacity is 499.72GB

    This has nothing to do with the question, but I feel driven to mention that, technically, WD's Green lineup includes both an obscure 800GB model and a freakish 808.8GB model (the latter is apparently due to it being a lucky number in China or something).

    Those are, of course, desktop drives, and I assume what Macman756 meant was that there are no notebook 800GB drives, and even if there were, Apple does not and never has shipped anything with an 800GB drive in it. The OP was, presumably, just mistaken.
