Looks like the 7200 rpm hd might very well be worth the upgrade:

shows 50% increase in performance. Of course I'm not sure what exact hard drives apple is using in the new pb, but there's a good chance its the one in that benchmark.

It's kind of difficult to determine what exactly hard mac is talking about sometimes, so I'm not exactly sure if this is the same as the 7200 RPM available through Apple.

I've seen other benchmarks (granted they were more generic) showing much less difference between 5400 and 7200 RPM drives.
