    I just got my new MBP and it has a Toshiba MK5055GSXF 500gb inside. My old one has a WD Scorpio Blue 500gb. I know the Scorpio Blue is supposed to be fast for a 5400rpm. Does anyone have an opinion whether it would be worth it to switch them? Is the WD superior? Thanks!

    Toshiba MK5055GSX both deliver balanced performance without significant peaks in any area, paired with low power requirements. WD offers the quickest access time, best I/O performance and high throughput,

    Thanks. So I guess the Toshiba isn't bad but the WD will be quicker. Now I just have to decide if I want to bother opening my computer up...
