    Then click "more info" then "serial-ATA", what does it say next to capacity?

    Yeh, it's plastic, a few years old. But it is running snow leopard 10.6.6
    I didn't bring it home today so I don't have any more info right now.
    Thanks for your replies

    A MacBook without an Intel CPU? Not possible. The MacBook was, from the start, an Intel-powered laptop. There was never a MacBook that wasn't.

    Sounds like a MacBook rather than a MacBook Pro, I think the smallest HD for a black MacBook would have been 55GB but still best to check. If it's 55GB and you have 11GB free then I would suggest 5.5GB is the most you should put on it. If you have a bigger HD, anything over 100GB and you have 11GB free then I wouldn't put anything else on it and I would be looking to take stuff off the HD anyway.

    Presumably once you are loaded with gestures on your iPad you can then remove the software from your Mac until they update the iOS again......not certain about this......and hopefully they will provide the gestures in the next update.

    Could be an iBook or PowerBook but I don't think so if it's black as I don't recall either being issued in black. The later iBooks looked identical to the MacBooks.

    Well, as I said I'm not an expert on all the Mac models. I wasn't aware there were any black/plastic MacBook Pros, so I guess I was just politely asking if it was really a MacBook Pro.

    I think I remember there being a black MacBook available for a short while sometime back. Didn't consider that.

    But since he says he is running 10.6.6, it's all moot.

    Thanks for the great replies! I will proceed with great caution, if at all. I don't want to risk buggering up my boss's machine, I'll check the numbers closely. I would like the gestures, but can also be patient for the actual release (keep checking those rumor mills, right?).
    I'll be more willing to experiment, and learn this stuff, when I get my own MacBook (maybe soon).

    I'd go with what Gabriel1 says. It's probably the best advice your going to get.

    The only other thing to say is that if you can delete stuff to get another 5 or more GB back on the laptop you could probably keep the XCode. Not that it sounds like you have any reason to.

    Yeh, I'd be REALLY crazy to start deleting stuff :)
    Sounds like it's too full to really push this, better safe than sorry, right?
    Thanks again, awesome answers!

    Slightly off topic but whatever size HD you have it sounds bloated. IMHO OSX is a wonderful OS but hates being bloated, I would suggest that you (or your boss) invests in an external HD and create alias's on it so you can delete data off of your HD. It is really easy to do and I can take you through the process, it will make a huge difference to how the MacBook operates and will ensure continuing stability.
