Re: just got my new lappy dell 1520
10 gigs for recovery?!?! OMG, that's probably what I'll be facing too. Mine is still in production. It's 160GB drive so I probably won't miss 10GB. If I were you, I would just leave that alone in case you need to reinstall everything. But you should also recieve a separate Recovery disc too right? From what I understand, it should come with Vista Home Premium disc, drivers disc, and other third party discs too.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
