    Hi everyone,
    My brother is going to purchase the new macbook for going off to college. He is looking at the middle model with 2 gigs of RAM and either a 120 or 160 gig hard drive.

    Would you guys suggest he gets a 160 gig if he is planning on running Windows via boot camp? He also wants to know whether or not a bluetooth mighty mouse and keyboard will work in bootcamp.

    Any other advice you guys would have would be great!

    The only way you're going to answer that question is for your brother to figure out how much space he uses in his daily computing. Does he download a lot of videos? Does he have a large music collection? 40 extra gigs seems nice for a Windows partition, but only your brother knows if he'll need that much.

    Can't say on the bluetooth in Windows. Google it.

    The mouse and keyboard will work fine.
