    The 60GB in my laptop is getting a bit cramped, but I have always had the intention of replacing it.
    I wouldn't mind a faster drive than the hts541060g9sa00 in my laptop now. Power is not a huge issue, I didn't buy it for battery life.

    Is the performance of a 7200rpm drive worth it?
    Is there a particular make/model of drive that I'd be better off with at 5400rpm?

    I've seen some fairly large drives at 5400rpm at very low prices, but I am concerned about performance.

    5400rpm drives are available in larger capacities, but I've seen 200GB 7200rpm drives, which should be enough for most users?

    I personally prefer to buy Seagate Momentus (7200.2) 2.5" drives, since they carry the same 5 year warranty as their 3.5" desktop brethern :clap:
