Well rotational speed is not everything. The 80 gig Hitachi/IBM stacked up surprisingly well against the 60 gig 5400 rpm in this test over at Barefeats. That's with a smaller cache to boot. Note also the comments about how quiet the 80/4200 is comapred to the 60/5400.dolawren wrote:
The laptop drive that you mentioned with the link in your original message is what I'm trying to talk about, That drive is only a 4200 rotational speed drive with a 12 m.s. seek time, Which is to me is nothing to boast about, Even if it is an 80 gb drive, I'd rather buy a 60 gb drive with better performance.
