    Hi I'm about to buy a new Macbook Pro 15" i5. I want to change the hard drive to a Intel X25-M SSD. There are 2 models, the 80gb and the 160gb which is pretty pricey.
    I was wondering, how much space it takes to have OSX and Windows 7 on the disk? I want to know if the 80gb would be enough.
    Thanks

    You could fit both of them on 80GB with about 50GB left for apps. Keep in mind that each OS will demand you keep free at least your RAM size (4GB?) for swap and hibernation space. Plus, the SSD will suffer some slowdown if you constantly keep it above 90% capacity.
