I partitioned my laptop SSD into two parts, because I like having my data on a separate partition from the OS. That way I can just reformat the OS partition if I want to reinstall or upgrade without worrying about my stuff. I don't do that on my desktop, because there the data is on a physically different disk from the OS.

I used to do that as well, but now with Dropbox and Sky Drive I feel it's less of a worry
