what's the actual capacity of a powerbook with 80gb hard drive, after installing Tiger?
is it around 60gb?
also, is there a good thread to clear out any unnecesary junk, like languages, ichat icons...etc?
QUOTE Thanks

before, it's something like 74.x gigs after formatting. Cant remember what the tiger install takes. but when you go to install it, you can choose not to install Printer drivers (2+ gigs of wasted files), along with a few other options.

That would be my suggestion. I do fresh installs at work all the time, without those files, for 2.5 gigs on the HD after install.
