    According to Finder, my hard drive has 83.69GB available.

    According to iStat, my hard drive has 77.94GB available.

    With the 7GB freed up from installing Snow Leopard, iStat seems like the one that should be correct, seeing as how I had ~68GB or free with Leopard.

    Which one should I trust, and why is there a discrepancy?

    Before I even opened this thread I knew it would be about Base 2 vs. Base 10.

    Both are correct given their own definitions.

    Right, I just saw that one another thread.

    And on a side not, has anyone else noticed SL is running a LOT hotter? I went from about a 118F average temp in Leopard to 151F doing the same things in SL.

    Future versions of iStat will have an option to use base 10 or base 2 for disks. iStat Menus 2.0 will have this on release.
