    Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I'm ordering my 13" MBP tonight and ordering the 500gb Momentus XT as well; I've never had a mac before/used bootcamp I was wondering if when you partition the hard drive for whatever other OS you are going to install (7 64b for me) do you also have to partition some of the flash memory or is the flash memory for all partitions?

    You don't have control of the flash space. Partitioning is like any other HDD.

    In short: flash memory is for all partitions.

    For all intents and purposes you can treat the Momentus XT like a normal HDD. The addition of the flash memory cache should be transparent to both you and the operating system. So partition away and it won't make a difference.

    Wishing you all the best with your new purchases,
