Only requirements are 160gb minimum, and 50 euro max on price. Its all about best average speed.

I dont mind noise, power usage etc the usual trades for laptop HDs.

i am leaning towards the 160gb scorpio black ( but even for this drive i find average reads reported between 63 and 83 mb/s ), but its difficult to find charts of HDtune for all those harddrives, some are 320gb drives with 32mb cache... and some are 4 year old drives so its not easy to find the best choice, so you guys are.

Pick one out of this list, it shows all the 2.5inch western digital sata drives.

thank you

I would go for a 250Gb or 320Gb black. I thought all of them had 16mb cache..besides the Seagate Momentus XT series which are not in your range.
