    Hey i wonder if 128 GB would be enough for Bootcamp :eek:
    Many people told me it would be pretty tight
    Using Bootcamp via external drive?

    Thanks

    I would leave at least 40GB for bootcamp. Windows 7 with all the updates is like 30GB.

    It'll be fine, just give Windows about 30~gbs

    Once you're in, delete the paging file and disable hibernation. That'll free up some space.

    EDIT: Well, I don't know your intentions and I don't know how much you have in use right now, but you can also split 50 - 50. Your choice, but it WILL work. My 11 Air performs as good as a PC (or maybe better)
