    I just want to get a running poll from everyone to see how they partition and section of their SSDs. Most of us do this for gaming on Steam etc. Doesn't matter if you have 64GB/128GB (256 guys -- leave us alone! haha)

    Also what do you guys think is the best way to cut down file size on OS installs etc.?

    I'm a "256-er" but on my old MacBook Air I gave Windows 7 32-bit about 40GB. It was enough to load Windows 7, Open Office, Quicken, and have a few GB left over. I have a larger partition now and put 64-bit on it along with a few other programs.
