Hi folks,just got a brand new computer(packard bell) with a 160gb hardrive but it's showing as a 140gb with over 10gb used and it's just out the box?Any ideas what's up?Thanks.

The operating system and installed software will take up a chunk of hard drive space; plus 160GB is the unformatted space: a hard drive's available space is always a bit less when it's formatted.
