    I just placed an order, was wondering if it is too late for me to change out the drive now?

    How much faster is a 7200rpm drive compared to a 5400rpm of the same size? Any noticeable difference?

    If you just called, definitely give them a call back ASAP. Dispatch will notify tech support or SSO whether the order has already been setup (chances are that it hasn't), if not then the change could easily be made.

    Why bother; for $50, you could buy the faster drive and sell the old one and still have money left.

    When I wanted to make a change to the 17" order I had placed 20 minutes earlier, the agent had to cancel it and re-place the order with the change made. Unfortunatley that pushes you to the back of the queue, so if you've been waiting a while already, it might be worth holding off and upgrading the drive yourself some time, possibly to the new Seagate 500GB 7200RPM drive which would easily outpeform the 320GB 7200RPM drive from Apple.

    Just replace the drive yourself and get a better component in the process:

    you can always get an icybox™ and stick the 5400rpm drive in it.
    thats what i wanted to do, but i still havent justified the 7200rpm drive.
    yeah, it boots a bit longer, but what the hay. its alright.
    :)
