    Hey folks,

    does anybody know how much power the MBP Unibody's standard 5400 rpm HDD needs? I read that the Hitachi Travelstar 7200 I'd like to put in this laptop has a power consumption of roughly 3.2W, and since I use it for work outside, I really need maximum battery-efficiency.

    Thanks :)

    EDIT : Actually the official numbers say the Travelstar has an average read/write consumption of 2.3W ... which makes quite a difference

    Either some people have posted the HD part number here, or on the Unibody take-apart pages.
