    another question before upgrading,
    7200 RPM is quite like 5400 RPM or does 7200RPm makes alot of noise
    and the fan is always on? what about temperature rising?

    Yes it will be noisier, but most drives are fairly quiet nowadays. Just make sure you get a good drive. The bigger downsides are heat and battery life, I personally don't think 7200rpm is worth getting in a laptop unless you are desperate for the performance increase.

    you could even pick up a 540gb HDD for it for about the same price as a 300.. just keep searching around.
