Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

Mastermind16x appears to have the same setup as me: (computer model - Asus U56E); also dual-booting WIN 7 along with Mint 13 MATE. Logic dictates his Asus would also have the Intel...

:? Why do my computer directories, both in Linux 13 MATE and Windows 7 OS's (and GParted) indicate only 600GB total space, when my computer actually has 640GB? The computer advertised as 640GB, so when I first explored and saw a total of "600 GB," I thought there was false advertising, but thought, ...
