    I'm just one click away of buying me the new iMac (20') :) , but there's one thing left of which I'm not sure: whether I should get the hard drive with 250GB or with 500GB.
    I want to use it as my main Windows XP machine as well. So should I get the 500GB one, because there are gonna be two operating systems installed or are 250GB enough?
    I do have an external 250GB hard drive.

    Any advices?

    It varies from person to person, and it depends on your use.

    I'm getting a MBP once Rev B comes out, and I know for certain that 120GB will be plenty for me to run both a Windows and Mac partition. But that's my use. Some other people probably can't survive on anything less than 250GB.
