    750 GB drive will be totally fine. Post your music question in the music forum.

    thats lots of space

    750 GB is a ton of space for a lot of things. Working with videos would probably chew it up more quickly than other things, depending on how many you have.

    You have a 40GB hard drive in your mac?

    That's tiny.

    I would get the stock standard drive (320 ? )and use the money saved to buy a big fast FW800 external drive. Use it for time machine and scratch disk etc.
    Cheers

    1-> Get the standard 320 GB HDD and buy two external firewire 800 drives

    2-> Get logic studio... Install the application on the internal HDD... Put all the included samples and soundbanks on one of the external HDD ... Record to the other external HDD... That should give you MAX performance, and the best HDD live, since the disc's - in laymans terms - only have to read at one place at the time!

    All the best.:D
