People run XP installs off 8GB SD or CFlash cards. A full vista system install is a space hog. I need 20GB for a vista ultimate install.

It all really depends on what you need the space for. Large HDDs are so cheap that people buy them without thought of how much they actually need. I record digital and satellite HDTV at about 3-5GB/hour.(depending on rez of broadcast) If you dont do anything like that, youd be suprised how far 80GB will take you!!
