    Sleep image is a file that OSX uses to store the contents of ram when you put the computer into deep sleep. You can easily disable it and remove it if you need the space.

    Wow... big file. Any other large files like this that come standard? I'm trying to decide between 128 and 256GB.

    I'm tempted, and might do it -- but $300 for an extra 128GB is hard to justify.
