... I don't like it too loud and I don't want the horrendous vibrations users have reported. Has the firmware update Apple issued not long ago fixed anything? Have some of the latest HDDs that came out recently been quieter and without those annoying vibrations? What would you suggest me to get? I think getting another 5400 drive is rather unreasonable and uneconomic because a year from now 5400 will be looked upon as ancient, whereas 7200 will still be regarded as somewhat better and newer (if I decide to sell my MBP then). So what's the verdict on the newest 7200 rpm drives?
