Open it up and read the info off the hard drive is the easiest way. While you are at it you can blow out the accumulated dust.

Two ways:

1: See in System Information how much recording time is available. The number of hours in Basic is about equal (a bit more actually) to the nominal HDD capacity.

2: Look on the model label on the back. The last 3 digits are the nominal capacity of the original HDD, if it is still stock. Mine is a TCD240080, which came with an 80GB drive.
