    There is a newer version of that drive out from western digital that spins at 5400 rpm. I bought it and installed it last week from new egg. But now it is out of stock. You can find the specs at western digitals website.

    The drive height on that one (12.5mm) may be an issue since I think the stock drive/parts are meant for 9.5mm high drives. I think Samsung recently released a 1TB 9.5mm high drive, not sure about any others.

    edit- That WD above would be another one.

    The new one I bought is the one that has 2 platters and is 9.5 mm tall.
