Is 5400 RPM the fastest speed for a notebook HDD or are then 7200 RPM HDDs?

Difference? yes. Big difference? cannot say depends on rest of the config
Alright then, I'll buy one tomorrow. Thanks
Prepare for a huge increase in noise and power consumption for little benefit.
Def not worth trouble for the difference in performance.. I think you would not be very impressed with the difference of the 7200 over the 5400.
If you cant buy one locally, it is certainly not worth the effort to order one .
@ Matrix Leader, I agree with 911medic there about if you can't buy locally think of the trouble you may have if there are any problems with the Hard Dive and you need to return it
for the extra money spent you can as well upgrade memory and CPU for a comparable increase in performance
I would really like to have a faster HDD man. I've signed up with USE2Me Mail forwarding service. Now I have to send them a stupid form and the copies of my ID and front and back side of the credit card..... :S What a hassle
Well that's quite discouraging man
Not trying to discourage you just stating a fact, I always buy locally if possible any problems then I can just pop back to the store. As for this situation
I would never give out my details in that form i know it may be some type of security check but i think they are asking for to much info.
The backside of the cc has the cvv number (security number). Why do they need that? Sounds very fishy, they should be able to complete the transaction with only the cc number.
Just use the 4200 HD..The performance increase is modest otherwise, and it sounds as though you are setting yourself up for potential fraud (credit theft)..I think they need too much unnecessary info. NEVER copy your credit card...let alone send the copy to someone else......
-Heard of identity theft??? Dont make it any easier for them.....
Aren't there any online stores that carries 7200 RPMs in the Emirates? Not a single one?
unfortunately not, and you guys scared me so I wont be going ahead with it
So I cancelled the account I created with them and they did not charge me for the account fees as they were supposed to take 23 USD so it's all good now
I didn't want the heat, noise and added power consumption of a 7200rpm drive when I upgraded my laptop, but I still wanted an increase in performance, so I used a 500gb WDC drive with a 32meg cache.
Much faster that the 160gb I replaced and uses less power.
