    I want to use Boot Camp to install Windows XP Home Edition. Anyone know roughly how much space that will take up once installed? Thanks!

    XP uses 1.5 GB of space. But you'll want at least 15-20Gb. Depending in what you intend to do in XP. Gaming? Photos? Music?

    I intend to manage music and photos in OS X. Really, the main reason for Windows is to play the games I already have...

    On the game box it'll say how much space is required for install. So add them all up, if there are lots and lots of games think realistically how many games you want to be installed at any one time. Then add about 2 Gb for windows and then a further 3 Gbs and you should be alright.
