I use my laptop for mostly surfing and communications, and 32GB is 
whopping large for CentOS 5. What files I would need to take with me 
stay on my jump drive (maybe 3 of 8GB, including lots of free software 
for my Windows friends). My personal stuff is lots of plain text, simple 
XHTML, and a handful of OO.org stuff seldom hitting 100KB in size. The 
most intensive task I do is burning CDs and Flash videos. I build 
everything custom on my desktop, which runs the same OS.
