    Just a stupid question. I just finished installing SC2 on my mac. Installed onto OSX 10.6.4. I noticed before installing the game it said i needed 12gb HD space. Not a prob. Also heard from friends it was 12gb before i got it. After i installed it I went in to Applications then found the SC2 folder and then hit get info. Its says its only 8.69GB. This is just out of curiosity. The game loads and plays fine. But why so small. Did it install in another section also? I looked in the user library real quick and couldn't find anything? any clue? Thanks :p

    that actually 12GB in most computers and the amount that it would take up on a leopard machine. with snow leopard apple changed the algorithm for calculating disk space. in snow leopard a 8.7GB file would be close to a 12GB file in Windows or previous versions of OS X
