I've read a lot about setting up partitions when running Windows via Bootcamp. As I understand it (and I could be completely wrong), you're basically splitting your hard drive into two chunks ans aying, "This chunk belongs to OSX", and "This chunk belongs to Windows."
But I'm a little confused about a couple of things, and would appreciate some clarification as I try to figure out what the ideal stats for a potential MacBook would be:
1. Do you have to partition your RAM too? I've seen comments about needing a certain amount of RAM if you're going to be running Windows, but I can't imagine why you would need to split RAM between the two.
2. I've read that you can access files from either partition, no matter which OS you're running. If this is true, what's the point of a partition in the first place? Can you only save to the partition belonging to the OS you're running, but can open files from both?
Thanks in advance for any info!
