I would like to go for a 750GB and perhaps something that is a bit more power efficient and cool since I'm going to have 2 hard drive running. Being a hard drive that I will use to store files, it does not need to be as fast, so it does not need to be 7,200 RPM. Also I think the one in my laptop is slowly failing, randomly throwing multiple I/O errors now and then. So I'm not sure that it's actually a reliable drive. If it fails I will replace it with a SSD.
