Hello,
I would like to know if there would be a noticeable difference to the speed at which accessing the internet browsing such as "you tube" or internet based "games", by having a HD either 5400 rpm or a 7200 rpm or a Solid State Drive?

Regards

The processor, video card and amount of RAM will make the difference there, not the hard drive.

But you dont tell us the spec of your current mac

No... not really.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Hello,
I am planning to purchase MBP and hence the question.

I am looking for a Skype useable and USB connectable internet usable unit.
I wanted to go for the iPad but iPad has no camera or USB port!!

I at present own a MBA 13.5 " bought two years ago.

Thank you for your answer .

The MBp can easily handle internet video, the only thing restricting it would be the quality of your internet speed.

If you latterly find you need more RAM than the base configuration, buy it from a third party supplier, speccing additional RAM on the Apple store is not very cost effective
