Sprockkets (or to anyone who can help): You replaced a 5400rpm Fujitsu with a 7200rpm 80 7k100. When you say 'that thing gets very warm comapared to the 5400rpm", do you mean the 7k100 gets very warm compared to the Fujitsu, or the 'little 180GXP HDD'?
I'm thinking about upgrading a Fujitsu 80GB 5400rpm hard drive, to a 7k60 60gb 7200rpm hard drive (i'm pretty sure it is Hitachi). Will I notice much a a performance boost? How much more heat will actually be produced? I plan to take the notebook as mobile machine and I want to minimize heat and noise. (Apps used include MS Office, web, some photo editing...quite basic stuff, perhaps little gaming). I am just wondering if the performance boost is worth the extra heat and noise produced...if I can, would it be better to go to the 80GB 7200rpm Hitachi appose to the 60GB one? (Keeping in mind capacity is not an issue/concern).
Thanks in Advance
