    Have ordered my MacBook 2.0Ghz White 80Gb HD, 2Gigs of ram. :D

    Hello guys!
    I am looking at purchasing parallels desktop to run xp. Was just wandering if anyone could help me out with HD space required?

    How many Gbs of space will this cost me?

    Also can it be uninstalled easy enough?

    Hi, congratulations on your purchase :D

    Hmm, I have parallels set up with Windows XP and it occupies 8GB, I figure it only uses this HD space when you boot up the virtual machine, so, it shouldn't be a problem, and you can configure the space you want it to be when installing Windows via Parallels, hope this helps, I'm kinda a Parallels newbie myself :)
