    Basically, I'm on Mac OS X 10.5.8.

    The specifications of my MacBook is in my signiture, so knowing what my specs are, is it worth paying cash to upgrade to Snow Leopard?

    absolutly its $30 ($25 from amazon) and you get so much back from it. just the extra 8 gb of hard disk space you get back it worth it to me. plus you get all this extra speed.

    My MBP came with snow leapord, and it runs great.
    Say, doesn't snow leapord use base 10 math for hard disk space instead of base 2? (i.e. 1000 bytes=1kb, instead of 1024b=1kb) Maybe thats were this 8gb of free space came from?

    Snow Leopard removes PowerPC support and handles driver installation differently, leading to storage savings.

    No, because it calculates all your data in the new format, not just your free space. So your used space will increase relative.

    The free space mostly comes from cutting out PPC code.
