    Anything I can do to cut the fat from this? or is 16gb just how big windows 7 needs to be?

    I only have a 30gb partition and would like to install more than a couple games.

    I have windows 7 installed on a 16GB partition right now with over 9GB free after some program installations. Look for "tiny windows 7".

    That being said, I was contemplating putting the full-size OS on this laptop due to some of the missing features...they trimmed a little more than the "fat". No WMP, no RDP - two of the things I wanted to use. YMMV
