    OS X plus all of the accessories will add up to about 15-16 GB I reformatted my MBP on monday night.

    Don't buy an 80Gb drive. Start with 500Gb minimum

    Well, after all said and done, from my original 160 GB hard drive, I'm taking up... let's see... 160-50=90 gigs.

    Wow, i'm taking up 90 gigs?! I gotta clean some crap out...

    But anyway, no OS X should not take up 30 Gigs. OS X, on a standard installation, takes up about 15 gigs. Although, there's a lot of packaged stuff I don't use (e.g. Office Test Drive, I have the full version of Office), and I was able to cut my installation down to ten gigs.
