    I'm getting a Lenovo X200 next week, and I intend to use it with OneNote to take notes/record lectures in my graduate classes. What I really want to do is get an SSD to throw into my tablet, but all I can afford really is an 80 GB drive at current prices. I don't intend to load up this computer with anything other than productivity tools, but I'm wondering how much space my audio recording will consume? I don't want to run out of room on a smallish SSD, no matter how fast it is. How much space does an hour of recorded audio take up, does anyone know?

    Sorry can't get you figures (google?) but 80GB storage should be plenty (Windows+Office etc. will be less than 20GB); you could always archive it off say once a week to an external drive.

    You can always configure the quality of your audio recording from onenote and set it to a setting that accounts for the space that you have available. Personally, I have a 120gb drive with notes for about 42 different courses and I have never even reached the 5gb mark. I don't use the audio recordings, but my gf does and she has never even hit the 5gb mark either. I'm sure 80gb is more than enough for a productivity tablet.
