Thanks all.

Hmmmm - I think I have over 30Gb of MP3s now, although as I've finished
ripping all my CDs that's not growing very fast
(until I can face the vinyl)

It's not exactly spacious with the 80Gb drive.
And it would be a shame to ruin the appealing form factor with an
external drive
(not to mention the one I already have is too noisy for living room

Plenty. At least 20Gb. Of course, that depend on how many
applications you use! The hard drive on my machine is only 40Gb, and
after partitioning (not necessary, but when I started I wanted a
separate OS 9 partition) my main partition is down to 34Gb. I've
currently got around 10Gb free, but I have recently copied to my hard
disk some reel-to-reel tapes using Audio Hijack, and as I haven't yet
compressed them in any way these amount to around 10Gb.
