    I have a 120 GB macbook, 2.1 ghz and 1GB ram and I wanted to set up Boot Camp on it.

    I plan on upgrading the RAM soon, but I have some questions.

    1. How much space does the Mac OS X Leopard take up? I've got 81 GB free from my 120 and I wanted to know how much was already being used by the OS?

    2. How high can I upgrade the RAM to?

    3. How much does the XP OS take up?

    XP takes about 7GB (from what I recall) and Leopard takes nearly 20GB (from what I've read)

    if you are looking for advice, with that amount of disk space, i would just use the 32gb default option that the boot camp manager gives you for windows. that way you can keep the partition FAT32 and access it from OSX

    os x takes about 10GB. ilife can take another 10 with themes, instrument packs, etc. when snow leopard comes out, it should be a lot smaller.

    Sounds like it is an older MacBook correct? If so, it may or may not support more then 2GB's of RAM.

    I got my Macbook in September 2008. I think it's an old one [​IMG]
