    Hey guys, I just got my 2.4 macbook pro and xp. I was wondering about how much space should I partition for windows on my hard drive?

    I believe the same you would on any computer.
    About 10GB.
    You may want to do 11GB just to be safe.

    Plus any storage space you need for apps/files.

    Total, I would allocate at least 50 GB.
