    Do you want to know, how much storage capacity you need for installing Windows or how much Mac OS X typically uses? You said
    thus my confusion.

    What Mac do you want to buy?

    And to learn more about Mac OS X:

    macbook pro 17"
    I want to ask how much storage will I need to install mac OS X and applications

    [while I am using windows the system partition is 75GB and it's full].
    all the application I run is available to macs [so on the new macbook I will not install windows on bootcamp or virtual machine ]

    That depends on the applications you want to run. Mac OS X and iLife take 10 to 15 GB. My Applications folder is 15 GB big with iWork, MS Office, Avid, Adobe and Final Cut Studio and some others in it. I have a 60 GB SSD and I get by.
