I upgraded from the stock 120GB 5400 to a Seagate 160GB 7200. The 7200 beats the 5400 hands down. Most noticable to me when ripping video to iTunes, at boot up, opening apps and the like. Remember, OS X is UNIX. UNIX relies heavily on paging space. Faster HDD = faster paging space. Xbench showed improvements for me, but bottom line is I rarely see beachballs anymore.
