    How much space for Win7 and Fusion?
    I just got a new MBP 2011 750GB. I had a 2009 MBP with windows 7 home premium and VM Fusion 3 installed. However, I only use 1 program that need Windows. It is an Embird Embroidery Program. I had allocated 40GB on my old MBP and believe that was too much, But I have no idea how much to allocate for this new one. I don't really use the Windows side for anything but that. How do I figure how much I should allocate?

    Thanks, Roxanne

    Fusion takes around 200mb and my Windows 7 load is around 20gb with MS Office, and a couple Adobe apps.

    Wow!! How much did space you allocate John? I don't think it can be changed later, right?

    I think I just used the defaults for the most part, but the partition is dynamic so if more space is needed you will be good to go.
