Hello, I have been content with my stock 5400 RPM drive but I would prefer Photoshop CS5 to be a bit more snappy and I wouldn't mind less boot-up or application launch time, either. I searched 7200 RPM 500GB 2.5'' Internal Laptop HDDs on Newegg and found a lot of results of course, but I have a few questions and would most certainly appreciate any suggestions thereafter. I know that I want a 7200 RPM HDD and not a SSD, as I do not have much use for SSD plus it is expensive and doesn't offer much space (unless it gets more expensive). Would you recommend that I go with SATA II (3Gb/s) or SATA III (6Gb/s)? I can supply any information such as applications that I use and the like. Does a Hybrid Drive (Momentus XT, namely) really outperform a regular 7200 RPM HDD? Is this drive mainly just hype? Will a 7200 RPM HDD considerably outperform a 5400 RPM HDD overall and more specifically in terms of Photoshop CS5? Does a 7200 RPM HDD really run hotter, make more noise, and consume more battery life than a 5400 RPM HDD? In all of the points above (albeit the specifics), I have heard opposite opinions on and I would appreciate a solid answer based on facts or experience if that isn't too much to ask. I would also much appreciate any suggestions for a 7200 RPM 500GB 2.5'' HDD. Thank you to all who reply.
