    Hard Drive Question!
    Hey ,

    Very soon i am buying a mac power book. I have decided to go with the 15 inch 1.25 ghz. power book. I am very new with the mac and i was wondering if i would have to upgraed from an 80 gig 4200 rpm hard drive to a 80 gig 5400 rpm drive if i was seriuse with doing editing with final cut pro 4. Is the upgrade woth the $125 cost?

    Please let me know! :confused:

    Umm...it would be a nice feature to have....but I'm pretty sure you could get away w/o spending the extra money...but if you have it...$125 ain't that much....so...really....it's up to you...it would be faster....but you could still do your work on the 4200...and I honestly don't know how much of a difference you'll see....plus...I haven't really done much editing...so..yeah

    If it was my money, I'd look into 7200rpm over 5400.
    One other thing to think about is the disk cache: larger is better

    I'm going to say "probably", but I've never tried it.

    What Chamorro said: "probably".
