    OS X takes up around 10-20GB depending on what you install with it.

    You will have about 60GB left over if I remember correctly. Why do you ask?

    If you need more order a bigger one or get an external.

    As StretchR mentioned very close to 20Gb, I think its actually 18Gb.

    I bought my MBP with the standard 120G HDD. The computer arrived with about 95G free. OS X (including almost 3G of language files), iLife, iWorks trial, Microsoft Office 2004 trial, etc., all takes up a fair bit of space.
