Pleasant surprise: 20Gb

Primarily due to taking lots more photos and having a growing store of emails and documents, my already loaded MacBook hard disk finally ran out of space. Fortunately, I found a cheap 120Gb replacement and have now upgraded.

The pleasant surprise, upon starting the machine again, was realising that the original hard disk was 60Gb, not 80Gb as I had thought. A 100% increase, rather than just 50%. Unless I do something silly, like put our entire music collection onto this machine, the extra space should keep me going for the life of the machine (hopefully a few years).
