More interested in free space on boot volume.

This is a good topic for a second poll, indeed.

I try to keep a bare minimum 10% of the drive free, but aim for at least 15-20% free. I've got a full 150 GB free on my 250 GB Macbook Pro drive, but that's because I just upgraded from a 120 GB drive with only 30 GB free. I usually ran 80 GB Powerbook drive with around 15 GB free, although I occasionally dipped below 12. That's still above 10%, and I usually ran into more trouble with a lack of RAM and CPU than hard drive room. Then again, I'm not editing 200 MB photoshop documents.
