    I've been searching around but I haven't been able to find a good answer on this: I
    'm going to install Windows through Fusion, but I don't know if I should install it first on bootcamp and then use the partition through Fusion or not bother with making a bootcamp partition at all. Are there any disadvantages to not making a bootcamp partition?

    I have 4 gigs of RAM, should I dedicate 2 gigs to windows? I won't be using it for any hardcore pro applications, mostly Office 2007, explorer, and outlook.

    Thanks

    If you're not going to be using intensive apps, there is no disadvantage :)

    Thanks for the quick reply....I will be installing Vista (which is the version I was able to get for cheap)...for those apps, is 1 gig enough or should I give it 2? 15 GB HD sounds good too?
