    Well sort of. I ordered an XP OEM off of zipzoomfly and it's scheduled to arrive on the 24th. And i'm getting Leopard for Christmas. I can't wait. I plan on putting Office 2003, maybe a few games on there and using it to watch movies on Netflix.com(since if requires IE :( ). What size partition would everyone recommend for something like this? And any other advice in general?

    it depends on the size of your games, but 30-40 gb is probably generous enough, and you might get away with a lot less.

    By the way - one thing that trips up a lot of people. Although Boot Camp formats the new partition as FAT, you MUST let Windows re-format during the install (I'd recommend NTFS), or Windows will fail to boot.

    I'm not really a big gamer. Age of Empires is about all I would put on there really.

    Hmm..I don't really know a lot about FAT and all that. So basically I should just let it do what it wants to do when and choose NTFS? Thanks.
