What is the minimal percent on my HD I should have so that it can run without slowing down?
It depends on what you're doing with the Mac. In my experience with all CS3 apps open including Bridge, Distiller and Acrobat, working on large Photoshop files and then running Safari and Mail, as well as using Word 2004 through Rosetta...
It works out to about 30-25Gb free for me. Which can be a pain at times.
'they' say 15-20% free.
but i'd say 20% at the minimum. it's not that hard to keep it within that range if you keep a lot of your photos on an external or some of your movies/music that doesn't get a lot of play.
also by using SkyDrive you can utilize 25GB free... that is if you want to go on windows live and feel like a goon
Man, I wish I had gotten the bigger HD when I bought my MBP, and I wish you could upgrade the HD.
