i don't get it. how can the performance of a 10K rpm drive with avg access time of 8 ms be the same as that of a 7.2K rpm drive with avg access time of 13.7 ms???
Single User SR Office DriveMark 2002:
8.0 ms, 73 GB, 8 MB buffer, Cheetah 10K.7 ($186 street) = 407
13.7 ms, 250 GB, 8 MB buffer, Maxtor MaXLine Plus II ATA-133 ($94 street) = 407
