We have Sharepoint at our company.  We are thinking of purchasing laptops with really small hard drives.  Do I need space for our sharepoint on our local drives.  The SharePoint will get big.

If you plan on using the "one drive" client synchronize anything for offline use, then yes.

Otherwise, if you will just be operating off the server, there should be minimal impact to the local station.

Hi,
as Matthew is right, the only bigger impact will be when you use OneDrive client, SharePoint workspace or any other local synchronization tool - otherwise the content is (and should) stay in SharePoint.
But what is "small" in your case? Keep in mind, that Windows with some additional programs like Office can eat up >60GB (after some service packs and Windows updates) - besides the hibernation file, system backups, page file ... which could add quickly another 12-32 GB.
Just my 2ct

"really small hard drives" will be old and unsupported.  Why do you want to do that?  The smallest hard drive that Seagate offers new is 250GB.  Western Digital and Dell also.
