I have the latest macbook with 120gb of space. Currently, there is only 76.66 GB left. I want to use either Windows XP or Vista. My question is, which one would be more suitable in a dual-boot situation (I'm afraid Vista might run too slowly).

XP would, most macs do not meet the specifications for vista seeing as the Mac OS uses less resources. and I am not sure if bootcamp will work with Vista.

Vista is good usuage if your going to use it for business, but if your going to do business and a little gaming, I'd recommend XP.
