    Hello,

    I just recently switched to macs last week--I went to the apple store and bought the new Macbook Pro. I am very happy with my new mbp, I love both Leopard and Windows, but I love my new mbp a tiny bit more ;)

    I have 2 questions about bookcamp:

    I have a copy of Vista Ultimate x64

    1. What is a good partition size for Vista Ultimate x64? I have the 250GB hdd in my mbp, and currently I have 213.21 GB free. Should I do maybe 15-20GB? I have a feeling I might need some space on my OS X drive. I have an external hard drive, can I use that for storage in my windows partition?

    2. If I ever decide that I don't want the partition anymore, is there a way I can remove the entire windows partition without re-formatting my hard drive? aka. remerge the partition with my os x drive, but remove all the windows stuff?

    Thanks for the help guys!

    What are you going to be using Windows for? If you do a lot of gaming, then I would suggest to use a 50GB partition for it. If you just plan on using some small apps, then 25GB would be good enough.
