I thought that seemed kinda expensive. CAD lol.
Yeah, 40'll be enough. You could go up to 60gb with a few dollars more, though, and get some apps on there. How much are you willing to spend?
This one's actually cheaper after rebate (CAD $100 before, $75 after) and 60gb: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
It will be enough....for a while......windows grows over time.....and you will have to be adept at changing the default locations for user files, e-mail, program installs and the like to keep it as small as possible.
