    Use Grand Perspective to see what's taking up your disc space.

    Replacing the hard drive is very easy, so it might be time to get a bigger one. They are not expensive these days.

    Probably because SL's About This Mac doesn't have such info displayed.

    Another suggestion is to delete all the unnecessary non-en and non-english .lproj language files with Monolingual and often save 4GB or more of HHD space. And add any non-Intel code as well for some more savings in its options.

    Read the manual first and immunize any later MS Office 2008+ and recent Adobe software from being stripped. Otherwise their auto-updaters won't work.

    Download Monolingual for Mac - Remove unwanted OS X language resources. MacUpdate.com
