How much space does OSX Lion take up??
Ok I am gonna get a new MBP and was computing if a 128gb SSD would be enough for my requirements. I wanted to know how much space would virgin OSX Lion take up on a brand new MBP?? Also how large is the recovery partition??
Also I am gonna bootcamp win 7 for a few games so how would you divide the space between osx and win7 partitions?? I will have around 15gigs of games at a time on the ssd.

On my iMac, the recovery partition is 650 MB. I did a "normal" install there. On my MBP, I did a clean install, and I think bare Lion was about 4 GB, but I don't remember for sure. With iLife, iWork, MSOffice, Lightroom, Photoshop and Xcode, I was quickly up to 20 GB.

Probably you can delete printer drivers and other languages to free a few GBs.
Things that use more HD space are:
Videos you should put inside an external HD. Check how much songs and photos you have (and estimate will have in the future) to see if the 128GB is enough.
Special mention to Adobe apps. If you install Adobe CS suite, expect dozens of GB occupied.
