I ordered the new rMB 1.3GHz/512GB model on opening night. My machine won't be here for a few weeks but I am planning out my software setup. My new Macbook will not serve as my home base. I have a Macbook Pro where I keep my iTunes, iPhoto/Photos, movies, etc. I bought the new Macbook for grad school and traveling. I need to run Windows for school. I have used Parallels in the past but I decided that I want to use Boot Camp on my new rMB. My question is how much of the 512GB should I allocate to Windows and how much to OS X? I have a 1TB Dropbox account where I keep all of my important files including anything school related. I dont run any intense applications like Photoshop, Logic, etc. at this point. I just want both partitions to run as smoothly as possible. Should I allocate 50%/50% to each? Heres a tentative breakdown of what each partition will look like: Mac partition: OS X 10.10.3 (I usually upgrade to the latest and greatest a couple weeks after it launches) 1Password Dropbox iStat Bartender (maybe) VLC Chrome Windows partition: Windows 8.1 Pro (the discounted student version direct from MS) MS Office (I am using Office 365 right now but I am planning to do a full install on this partition for convenience) 1Password Dropbox Chrome When school starts, I will have other school-related software on here, but I dont know much at this point. Did I really need to buy the 1.3GHz/512GB model? Probably not and thats not the question I am asking here. If you have any other suggestions, please share. Thanks.
