    I will be purchasing a Macbook pro at the end of next till debating whether should i get the 7,200rpm disk upgrade.does this disk really give it that much perfomance? thsio will be my jack of all trades mac(gaming,internet,photoshop and hopefully final cut pro.

    As stated before it depends on you. I can feel the difference in harddrive reading/writing tasks on my 7200 from my gf's 5400. alot. but she doesn't seem to notice *shrug*

    So I don't have a definite answer for you on that I guess.

    With Photoshop and Final Cut, you'll notice it when exporting. So I'm leaning for 7200.
