    I just upgraded my 4gb ram unibody macbook pro from a 7200rpm 320gb to a 5400rpm 500gb hdd. Ever since the upgrade, occasionally when I run too many programs at once or doing nothing at all except typing this thread, the computer would lock and I would get the spinning cursor thing. Nothing is clickable for a good 20 seconds and then the computer goes back to normal...

    What's the cause of this?

    Resetting the PRAM fixed the beachball. Just bumping this thread to let people know. :)
