    You'll need at least a 4GB drive, most likely.
    Epic fail. I have a 60gb ipod video that i could use, think thats possible? lol

    I plan on doing the same. I've got everything backed up and, if anything goes bad, I can always just go back to W7. It's about time for a wipe and reinstall anyway.

    It's going to need to be at least beta before it sees my main PC, these early builds dont tend to like my monitor setup
