The JRE weighs in at 70.7 MB, the JDK at 165 MB, all the latest updates
(1.6.7/1.6.3 respectively), all installed with doing the default install.

My Netbeans 6.1 install is 160 MB (includes Java [EE], C/C++ and
Ruby/Rails support, including a handful of gems for JRuby and a few
modules for NetBeans).

All values are on Windows XP SP3, NTFS with smalles possible cluster
size. ;)

You'll have to add a little overhead for configuration files for
NetBeans, but that comes in at 2MB or so (let's be generous).

Which all in all clocks in at just shy of 400 MB, but not 700GB. And the
JDK is optional, too.
