    I have never used boot camp before. I'm just curious how much MINIMUM hard drive space do I need to reserve for Windows 7, and which version of Win7 is it?

    Does the SSD also boost the speed and performance Win7?

    I want to have Win7 installed just in case one day I might need it :D

    Thanks in advance.

    I think it's around 15 GB for 32-bit and 20 GB for 64-bit, but don't quote me on that. To answer your other question, yes. But as with Macs most of it is at boot. My i7 has an OWC SSD in it, boots from bootloader to login in 12 seconds.
