    So the 4200rpm drive in my 867mhz powerbook finally decided to bite the big one, so now after frantically backing up whatever I could I'm in the market for a new drive.

    I want 80 gigs, 5400rpm and an 8mb cache, and have basically narrowed it down to either:

    Western Digital wd800ve


    Seagate Momentus 5400.3 ST980815A

    Any suggestions? Does anyone here have either of these drives running in their laptops?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    I vote for the Seagate as they generally have a 5-year warranty (I think the WD is 3-year).
