i had a 20 for sometime now... dual booting 98 and 2k. I normaly fill that in just a few weeks. I got a laptop with 30 gig only 3 months ago and it only has 5 free. My micron only has a 8 but i'm lucky if there is any space. I had 15 gigs on my bro comp So i just went and got a 80 for my desktop. :)

bah, save some money and get more space, find a 120GB WD for a good price ($149 at newegg) and buy 2, at least you'll end up with more space at the same price

let's see... my PC....

180 gig: 162g used, 18g free space
60 gig: 59g used, 1g free

I rip all my dvd's onto my PC so that is why i have so much space used up, that is also with XP Pro. and compression in NTFS.....
