    I am going to purchase a Macbook Pro soon and was wondering a couple of things:

    1. With a 128GB solid state hard drive, will it be enough space to dual boot both Windows 7 and Snow Leopard without performance loss? I plan to install 3-4 games (~20GB) on the Windows partition and Adobe CS4, Office 2007 and iPhone SDK on the Snow Leopard partition.

    2. Assuming that I get a 128GB solid state hard drive, what partitions do you recommend (ie a 50/50 split or 30/70 etc)?

    3. Should I get the upgrade option on the apple site for $180 or buy a third party one? If I should buy a third party SSD can you be so kind as to point one out for me?

    4. After all this talk, is the SSD even worth it? Should I just get the 500GB 5400RPM?

    Thanks in advance :)
