    I don't actually have any apps stored on my Mac's iTunes since I can always download them again from the purchases tab.

    You can delete the apps from iTunes, if you want. Like Karen stated, you really don't need to keep them on your computer anymore because they are readily available for re-downloading in the purchased section of the App Store.

    The only exception is if you have or in the future get one of those apps that Apple pulls from the store (such as those that have a hidden tethering Easter egg) or an app that has an update you don't like and you still have the older version. In either of those two cases, you should keep the app around on your computer because you won't be able to get it any other way.
