    So for those of you using bootcamp, how are you allocating your space?

    Ex. On 500 gb hard drive, you have 50% for mac and 50% for windows? Or do you have a 3rd shared area that is shared between the two for itunes music?

    I don't use bootcamp directly, but use VMWare Fusion.

    When I set it up (three years ago, now!), I set aside a 60GB partition for the Windows Machine. (XP)

    I have MS Office stuff, Visual Studio, SQL Server, even the old Adobe CS2 suite... and I have plenty of space.

    All my music, videos, photos, fun stuff is on the mac side.

    On my 500GB hard drive in my current MBP I believe I allocated about 100GB for windows. Probably do that same this time.

    No shared space for iTunes, you can set up a windows iTunes library and point it at the files on the mac drive with the new bootcamp drivers since you can read your mac partition in windows now.
