I don't have a Mobilesync folder

Hi! I recently got an iPad mini. I'd like to delete the Mobilesync folder on my Macbook because the iPad takes so much space.
I know Mobilesync is supposed to be under the "Application Support" folder but Mobilesync wasn't there when I checked out the Application Support of my laptop.
Help, please! Thanks in advance!
No you don't want to delete the MobileSync folder because that is where your backup is stored.
You probably have way more junk on your Mac than that MobileSync folder accounts for in storage capacity anyway. Get an external drive and copy some of your infrequently used files onto the external drive and leave the MobileSync folder in place.
If you insist, this is where the folder should be.
iTunes places the backup files in the following places:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
