    I'm just wondering for those of you who have put Vista on a MBP (along with OS X), how large of a partition have you set for it? I'm trying to decide on a good chunk of my 160GB MBP hdd, but I'm not entirely sure. Any recommendations?

    It will depend on what PC software you are going to run, but somewhere between 30 and 40 Gig should be ample.

    vista takes about 10gb so make sure you have enough space for everything you want to put on that partition. I didn't realize how large vista was so now i have a partition that isn't really big enough for my games. =[
