    so im getting a 2.2ghz mbp in 2 or 3 days mostly(i hope so:mad:)...
    and i wonder if the 120gb that comes with it is big enough to install bootcamp and xp on it(for some games) and parallels(for MS office)??

    How much GBs i will still have free for my files and apps?? -dont need exact number-.

    and do you think Leopard will need more HD size than current Tiger?

    thanks alot for helping.. =)

    The things that _really_ take up space are #1: Digital video #2: Tons of music #3: Hi-resolution photos. 30GB for XP should be ok, since there is no need to put either of these three items onto XP. Now digital video is so space consuming, I'd go directly to an external 500GB harddisk for that and not bother with a big internal one at all (one 60 minute tape = about 13GB). A few hundred CDs and reasonable amount of photos would be ok with the remaining 90 GB, and anything else is just peanuts compared to 90 GB. If you have a thousand CDs and you want all your music on the Mac, or take tons of photos, then either go for a bigger disk or for an external one.

    Oh, Leopard doesn't take significantly more space.
