    Optimum size for what? I can't tell if you are talking about SL or Win7. :confused:

    Optimize size for SL, I will be using windows 7 more so i need max amount of space there.

    From Apple.com

    That is the minimum requirements; I don't know an exact number but I would assume that the optimum space is somewhat more than 5 GB. :)

    [EDIT] I would say leave 15-20 GB (or maybe a bit more) for SL, so you'll have enough for usability. That still leaves plenty out of a 500 GB HDD. :)
