What would you do.... I can't do this kind of change myself, but, Macservice.com seems to offer what I need. But, should I wait for the 500gb 7200rpm to come out, or get the 320gb 7200rpm? Only problem is that they only offer the Hitachi HD for this. seems the seagate has the best reputation though.

Would a 500gb 5400rpm samsung be noticable speedwise? Any input would be appreciated... the more I read about this stuff the more confused I get!!

If you are worried about speed. I would totally get Seagate Momentus 5400.6 HDD. They currently are the fastest HDD in the 500GB capacity drives that are out now.

Samsung read and write speeds are a snail compared to Seagate Momentus 5400.6 & WD's Scorpio Blue. Not to mention it drains more energy than 7200 RPM HDDs that are on the market now. As far as I'm concerned Samsung's M6 is garbage.

Their new 256 SDD on the other hand is very nice. ^-^"
