    Hey all,

    How much space is available out of the box on a macbook that has Mavericks installed on it? In other words, how much space is taken up?

    Anyone have a screen shot of the Storage tab on "About This Mac"? Specifically on a 1 TB SSD?

    I have the 512 SSD. Out of the box was 499 and some change.

    ~11GB with iLife installed. If something this small affects you the drive you're looking at is too small.

    No, it doesn't both me at all - I just was wondering how much stuff I've actually added to my macbook in the last few days since I booted up for the first time...

    Check your Home folder's size. It should contain everything you added, excluding Apps. That's in a different folder.

    It started with 985, but some programs were installed.

    Thanks, this is perfect. Your audio and photos are near my totals. I was wondering why they come like that, good to see it isn't just my machine.

    Thanks, will check it out!

    So annoying that '997', they should find a way to make it 1000, it's so un-Apple to not go for clear cuts :)
