    HI guys! :)

    quick two questions. i was wondering what the general size is that people set their partitions at? i set it at 32 but im not sure if its the newness of the windows or whatever but im wishing i set it to like 80 now (my HD size is 320). :p

    my second question, im running a 13' last gen mbp, and i just installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit. would a 2gb ram increase (to 4) make a noticable difference?

    Depends what you are doing, but generally yes 4GB is better than 2GB. 2GB is the Minimum System Requirement for W7 64 bit.

    There's a long thread about partition size and a guide on how to change it stickied to the top of the forum, so I won't say more than you are aiming right for my sweet spot. 20-25% of the drive dedicated for Windows.
