Is it possible to put a velociraptor in a laptop?
I thought the Velociraptor was just released w/o the heatsink? Wouldn't that make it work?
There's still the matter of the hdd's power consumption. Most laptops use a 5400 Rpm and a few use a 7200 Rpm. If you need faster load times get one with a SSD.
SSD may be the answer, but there are som 7.2k laptop hd that will work just fine. Maybe none of the VR's though.
I'm just trying to find a fast HDD for a laptop, but I'm not going to pay for a SSD. Price/performance is rediculous.
i'm sorry this may sound very rude but what are you using the laptop for that you will notice the difference between a good 320GB 7200 vs a 300GB 10K? just get a WD 320GB SATA 2.5in lighter almost as fast and less heat
its a single platter design vs the dual platter raptor thus it shouldn't be to much slower and sucks down almost half as much juice
Naw, price/capacity is ridiculous -- price/performance ain't all that bad.
I can't think of anything that anyone would do with a laptop that would require a 10K RPM drive.
Is that Tom-chart up to date?
i would take that drive
here it is on the egg
no it doesn't have the scorpio with a 16mb cache
That's what I was thinking.
but that should put the WD as the fastest laptop drive
What should put the WD as the fastest laptop drive?
the 16MB cache its already the 2nd fastest overall with a 8mb cache so the 16 should give it enough of a boost to take out the hitachi
