    So, I'm curious if anyone here has managed to get Windows 7/8 running on the 2013 13" MBP, and if so, how well it ran? I need to be able to run Windows, and not in parallels or some virtualized crap. I mean natively at full power.

    On a side note, under Mavericks, what is the smallest partition size you can create for the Mavericks installation? I was planning on 30 OS X/90 Windows to start (I'd be using Windows more often, due to software restrictions imposed on me by school and work).

    I set it up using Bootcamp and it worked fine...

    Are you talking about the rMBP because the regular one didn't get a refresh this year.

    Correct, the retina model. Sorry about that.

    Running windows 8.1 via bootcamp and parallels in the 2.4/8/256 model it runs super smooth.
    I even think it runs smoother than mavericks.

    Win7 on bootcamp. Runs great. I have the 15" though 2.3/16/512/750m. Not sure how low you can go with OSX. I can give you a reference of what I used up. On my bootcamp partition, I set it to 125. I have Win7 and Visual Studio 2013 on it and nothing more outside of some Windows updates and some drivers. I have roughly 77 GBs of space available there still. My OSX partition is 375 GBs. I installed a few apps plus Office 365 for Mac. I have 344 GBs of space left on that.
