    Seagate Momentus XT.
    Btw, platter based HDDs never even saturate the S-ATA 1.5Gbps (S-ATA I) interface, as that interface offers approx. 148MB/s, HDDs are lucky when they get 120MB/s (3.5") or 105MB/s (2.5").

    Would SSD be a good option? I keep hearing about how much speed they can add (I will be running ProTools 8 so speed is important to me).
