    I have a 120 gig hard drive now. ...I just feel like maybe its a bit too small for 2 partitions. But then again, i won't be using the windows one much. Just a few programs here and there.

    I'll probably get a 200 gig hard drive for the macbook later.

    Well, I guess it depends on what exactly you plan on using Vista for. If you plan on doing gaming, I would say 30-40GB. If you plan on just using basic Windows only software, I would imagine a lesser amount would suffice.

    What do you plan on using Vista for? :)

    Well vista64 for me took about 13 gigs when I installed it... now I dont store any user data on my startup drive. I have network storage for data so I guess that cuts down on how much space I'd need.

    I'd say if you use Vista lightly and want some rook for apps and stuff, go with 30-40gigs.
