    What is the stock partition arrangement of an SSD Mini?

    In example -- In some HP laptops they use the four primary partition slots with system (OS requirement), OS, recovery and HP tools.

    The standard setup for any Mac is the following.

    EFI partition 209MB (this is used as cache space for firmware updates)
    Recovery HD partition 650MB (this is a contains some utilities and can reinstall the OS over the Internet)
    Macintosh HD partition of whatever is left on the disk (this is the main partition with the OS and all your apps and data)
