So I made the plunge and bought a the middle of the road Mac Book (first blog post from the new putar). I am going to install Vista on the drive (am I hearing boos and hisses?) but I am wondering about how much disk space to put on each partition. It all hinges on a fairly n00b question that I can't find the answer to--I know they use different file systems, but is the data from OS X available for Windows to read? For example, do I need two copies of my music? How do you guys have your Macs divided? Do you even boot it up into OS X ever? I am considering giving OS X a try, to see if I like it better than windows. (more boos and hisses?)

Also, lol for reading this article at Teh Consumerist. Sure enough, he pitched all that crap, and I turned down the hard sell. Then he got crafty. In the end we worked out a bargain where he sold me Apple Care for $66 off the $250 price ($183) in exchange for him giving me the student discount ($100 off my $1300 laptop). Then we agreed that I would return the Apple Care for a refund at a different store. I guess I would drive 20 minutes for $100.
