    I posted this in the C2D MBP thread but it got quickly buried under about 50,000 replies.

    Apple owes me a new MBP w/ $200 worth of HDD bumps (200GB) but I'm not sure I feel comfortable in a 4,200 RPM drive. Unfortunately, I cant afford the $300 difference to upgrade to the 2.33 version PLUS a 160GB HDD (if they would even let me).

    Woe to me.
    What shall I do? :eek:

    I hear talk that the 4200 RPM drive is equal to the 5400 RPM drives. True?

    How about the extra .17 ghz and 128 Mbytes of VRAM?

    Do you need the extra space on-the-go?

    If not, get the faster processor.

    Well... I sometimes like to bring a FCP project with me. Its also nice to have a few games all my music, aperture library, livetype media, and all 20GB of X-plane. :eek:

    At the same time... 4200 RPM????? What is Apple thinking? Does perpendicular recording really increase the speed that much? Is it a toshiba drive???

    Finally, I wonder how future proof It will be if its between more storage or a better GFX/CPU setup...

    Upgrade for 200 bucks? Are you saying we can trade in our MBPsfor the C2D? That's too good to be true Apple would not do that. Thing Is i am waiting for a replacement of my MBP, and it has not been ordered yet so I wnt to pay on top and order a new one :) :(

    Apple owes me one because mine's been repaired for the same issue over and over again. Its gotten to the point where they usually just replace it.
