    I just got my blackbook a few days ago and i love it so far. What i don't want to happen is it to get slow like my dell inspiron that is only a year old. My question is i don't know if putting all my 50gb of music on my mac will slow it down. The hd is 250gb, 2.4 ghz, and 2gb ram. I only ask because i think lack of hard drive space made my dell so slow. Thanks in advance.

    As long as you have 10Gb or so free it'll be fine. Normally even less than that will be OK.

    I thought the general rule of thumb was keep about 10% of your drive free. Or does that no longer apply at larger hd capacities?
