More focused results
Unlike Google which searches the internet for content, Spotlight searches your hard disk. Searching is very fast because Spotlight indexes your hard drive in advance. Spotlight does full text searches of your documents but also indexes much more. For example, if I Spotlight "Chris" on my Mac, it pulls up Address Book cards, Chat transcripts, iCal Events, Mail Messages, Safari browsing history and much more.
You may find that you don't want some of this data to be indexed by Spotlight. There is a simple way to exclude items from Spotlight.
