Re: 80GB hard drive is too small for Vista Home Premium???
Both Ken and JW are correct. My initial install was on a Precsion M70, with
only 1 Gig of RAM and 80 GB HDD. I upgraded to a 160GB HDD, not because of
Vista, but because Visual Studio 2005 and Orcas, my development directoreis
and things like the Windows Driver Kit had consumed over 50%.
