The 512GB SSD translates into 499.4GB.
After running Monolingual (which removed barely a few hundred MB) I removed my 8GB sleepimage file and now stand at 488.7GB.

That brings ML down to about 11GB :D

Looking at the disk breakdown, you can still remove about another 1 to 1.5GB with built in videos, pics & Alex voice.

Be sure to come back and let us know when you have filled your drive with 480GB worth of data, so we know that the extra 8GB you freed up was worth the effort.

I do have at least 300GB of stuff including multimedia files and will install VMWare Fusion + Bootcamp.

On the effort front: It did take me about, ohhh at least 10 sec. to do it ;) so well worth it.

I also recently nuked my sleep image (on a 128gb 2012 model) and so far everything's been great. REALLY appreciating the extra space.
