good news, by far is 7200rpm, its nice that manufacutes starts to release more 7200rpm drives, 5400rpm is realy slow, if you wanna have a highend laptop for gaming (x1800+cd2 t7200) ^^

I don't think you will notice any difference on a laptop UNTIL the HDD cache sizes get bigger. Then you can rip at 3GB/s from the cache. You'll feel that!

Its just about damn time the mobile market caught up with the desktop side of things. For instance, on this notebook here, its a Dell Latitude D610, it has a 40 GB drive or something like that and alot of times its slow. Like right now. Nice to see this stuff made faster.
