I'm looking at the possibility of upgrading the factory Fujitsu drive to a Western Digital 500GB, 7,200rpm drive.
From Newegg: Western Digital Scorpio Black WD5000BEKT 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive item number=N82E16822136692.

I noticed this when I went to get the specs on the Fujitsu drive.
Linkspeed is 3gb, but negotiated speed is 1.5gb.

Does that mean Apple installed a slower drive from the factory?
