Getting asked on the daily what is in my other section, has become a great question. If you select the and go to about this mac, click more info, and then go to the storage tab, you can see the amount of used and free space in OSX.
Often times on portables, this space can be taken up by local snapshots on the system. I have found a very useful terminal command that will show you exactly what is in that space. press command then spacebar to bring up spotlight, and type terminal to open terminal. Once terminal is open type the following command: "du -d1 -h"
Now you can see where your hard drive space is being used.
