Default 64 GB Dell SSD only 57GB. - 02-20-2009, 07:20 PM

Just got my mini with stock Dell 64GB SSD. Disk Util/OSX formats it out to only 57GB. Is this normal?

Yes. It's a difference in the definition of GB by drive manufacturers and everyone else. The drive makers consider 1GB to be 1,000,000,000 bytes whereas the OS considers it to be 1024*1024*1024 or 1,073,741,824 bytes. This comes out to be about 59.6GB. There's some overhead for formatting.
