SO I just bought this Lenovo ideapad z470 when it says that the HDD of it is 750GB.... and it shows that in the my computer that Drive C only has 99.9gb of space, why is that? Have I been ripped off?

Not necessarily. Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management. On the lower half of the screen what does it show for drive capacity under Disk 0? On the line for Disk 0 does it show any other drive letters, or Unallocated space?

Did you just buy it brand new or used?If brand new i would find out why its only showing that. Actually with a 750 gb harddrive it should show as about 699+ gb.With the operating system and all of the programs in there thats going to take up space in the drive.I cant say for sure yet if you have been ripped off but either the drive size has been severely misrepresented or you have a lot of things on the computer using up the drive.If its brand new i would take it back and find out what the problem is. If its used again find out why the drive size is way off.Do you have any programs or music, pictures, documents that are large files?That can quickly eat up space in a computer.
