hi, i am all set to purchase a 15 inch powerbook for college. however, i am unsure of upgrading the speed of the hardrive, from 4200 to 5200. is it worth the price ($45), and is their a loss in battery life due to the increased speed. would the added performance warrent these two concerns? thanks - chris - hopefully ordering today!

I would pay the extra $45, I don't really think the battery life would be a noticable difference.
