    Well after losing all my data to a hdd failure, i replaced the factory hdd with a 7200 RPM Seagate 160Gb hdd. Lesson learned...back your stuff up!

    Now i've gotta think of what to put on there.

    It runs faster (i think) but I've definitely noticed a decrease in battery life. It's well within a reasonable range and it may have to do with keeping the wifi on 100% of the time, but it seems like i'm recharging it more than i did with the 5400 factory hdd in there. One thing's for sure...

    Speed > battery life :D

    I have a factory 80gb HDD, and I'm thinking of getting either the 320gb 5400, or the 160gb 7200.


    I'm leaning towards the 320gb though, because of the space and battery life.
