The OP asked for an opinion on whether to go with a 7.2k or a larger 5.4k drive. Based on my own experience there is a dramatic, very noticeable difference between the two. If all the OP is after is outright speed-which he said plainly was the main goal in his first post-then the only real option is a 7.2k internal drive, unless he gets an expresscard with FW800 or SATA and an external enclosure with a 7.2k or even 10k desktop drive. And the speed increase, in my opinion, is very much worth $200. Program load times are greatly reduced, boot time is reduced, etc. It makes an enormous difference.

I'm really not sure what your issue with my post was. *shrug*
