    I know you're always supposed to leave some "breathing room" on your hard-drive regardless if it's solid state or not, but how much free space should I be leaving on my 128GB SSD, cause I must have forgotten exactly how much space WoW and SC2 take up... :eek:

    Something like 10GB should be more than fine. If you have less than 1GB or so, the OS may start to act weird because there is no space for the swap file for example. Extra free space will be used for garbage collection to keep the SSD snappy (most SSDs have some space dedicated to this anyway).

    Ah, that's a relief, I bought this laptop strictly for DJing/Music Production/School, but all the music will go on a external FW800 anyways, so only needed enough HD space for maybe WoW/SC2/TF2, Office for Mac, and Reason 5 if I decide to write some music on the go. Good to know I haven't cut myself too short on space.
