    You need a laptop hard drive, a Raptor is a desktop hard drive.

    Why do you need such a fast RPM drive? These things are not cars you know, other factors determine data throughput.

    That'd be a 7200RPM drive.

    We can't help it if people want their Mac to speed :p.

    Yeh but hard drives are still the slowest part of the computer by quite, and generally a faster drive will help boost the speed quite a bit, the PF can be accessed much much more quickly...
