    Is the OS stored in the Flash memory??

    If Snow Leopard takes up 30GB in and of itself -- is that going to effectively cut the 64 GB flash memory in half, before you even walk out the door with it?

    From Apple's website:

    Hmmm.. I guess I was thinking partition, not actual install size. I still think it is a little bigger than 5 GB.

    But even at 5GB -- is that 5GB stored in the flash memory?

    Yes, since the Flash storage will be the only form of storage (besides RAM), the OS will be installed there.
