Well im in a situation which is probably a no brainer but still want people's advice Im planning to install Windows XP (cuz i think vista str8 up blows right now) onto my Macbook pro with Boot camp. What i hear is that you can partition your hard drive. well it says 160gb but of course i only have 148gb and already only have 111.5gb free. I plan to use the Mac side for EVERYTHING else BUT gaming, and on the windows side i plan to play games. CS, BF2, Wc3,WOW, normal but not too many games, maybe 5 games installed MAX. The rest i will do on the mac side. messenging.browsing, everything else. So how should i partition my hard drive and what do you recommend? should i do a 70/70, 40/100, 50/90- With those numbers the Mac side has the more space But with all that said what should i do? And what are the bennifits of making it half/half 70/70 or do what else is out there? Thank you for your time. Also input any other tips im new to bootcamp/XP Edit*** For got to mention. Does installing Boot Camp Slow or comprimise my Mac OSX performance? And do you recommend XP or Vista now that Vista is out?
