    Getting a new MBA. Was going to get the 128 GB HD.
    Would I need the 256 GB for Windows 7.

    I'd say that Windows 7 takes up around 20GB, baring in mind you'll need additional space for all of your other applications and patches for the OS.

    If you can afford it, I'd vote for getting the 256GB SSD. I have a 250GB HDD in my laptop with 150GB for Snow Leopard and the remaining 100GB for Windows 7.
