    Anyone bought a Pro with a 7200rpm drive in it yet? Just wondering about the obvious - heat, noise, speed etc...

    common sense applies:

    it will be a little hotter
    it will be faster
    it will be a little noisier

    In reality:

    It's not that hot
    It's definitely faster
    It's not much noisier

    ;)

    Did you get your MBP? Because when I upgraded to a 7200 rpm drive in a previous laptop, i noticed it was louder and hotter than the 5400RPM Drive. you missed the point: its RELATIVELY hotter/louder.

    I'm not saying that its hot or loud, it's just hotter and louder
