    I've got the MBA 11 with 64GB SSD and 4GB Ram. With Snow Leopard, I've got about 30GB free, after using Monolingual to keep only English and also got rid of Garage Band.
    After I upgrade to Lion today, can I expects about the same size free on my SSD?

    Last I heard, the GM was about 4 GB. I'd budget 5 or 6 to be safe.

    But, that replaces what I've got, correct? If it does, then, shouldn't I be around the same free space?

    I believe Lion also installs a recovery partition, so budget another 4-5GB for that.

    Average males weigh 330-430 pounds, and females weigh 250-350 pounds. The males reach an overall average length of 8-9 feet from the tip of the nose to tip of the tail, and females averaging 7-8 feet. Both sexes seem to average right around 3 1/2 feet at the shoulder, with males averaging only 2 inches taller than the females.

    Approximately 4 feet tall (7 feet when standing on two legs), with a 3ft. long tail. Will fit in a large cage, but roars loudly.

    The Lion Installer App (download from App Store) is exactly 3.74GB.

    It is not 3.49GB, or anything else. I am led to believe that this is the exact same installer app as the Golden Master.

    I'm downloading it right now.

    The Golden Master is version (build) 11A511
