    I went from 165.4 GB to 186.87 GB. That's almost 21.5 GB gained! How much did all of you guys gain?

    You didn’t actually get that much back. It's because Apple is jumping on the bandwagon that 1mb is no longer 1024kb but it is now 1000kb.

    This is used by HD manufacturers to make the drives look bigger than they actually are.

    Damn. I got about 25-30 gigs back. Some of it's probably due to the new base-10 size calculations, but some of it's got to be actual space.
