Mac OS X Now that the Mac App Store has been snuck installed onto your machine alongside Mac OS X 10.6.6, you might be wondering - is there some way to remove that monstrosity of an application from my Mac? While it's not officially supported, it does seem like Apple has taken this scenario into account.

It doesn't take up enough space on today's terabyte hard drives to even be noticeable.

Except that Thom has already stated here that he owns a MacBook Air with a small capacity. In an era where 2TB discs are common, having a 64GB ssd justifies that "search for space"... I think.

It depends what he does with it. When I was not playing a lot of recent games nor storing large amounts of videos on my computer, its 60GB were more than enough. In fact, I had two OSs installed with 30 GB for each.

On the other hand, now that Windows and OSX alone take more than 12 GB, when you add up a reasonably big music library (~10GB) and some large third-party applications... 30GB are certainly not enough anymore. So I wonder if for someone who crunches more disk space than me, 64 can be considered enough.
