    I understand... but the Scorpio Blue offers performance that rivals or beats the 7200's according to the reviews

    Plus, it offers less power consumption, less heat, less vibration
    If you are stuck on the 7200, then it might be a while, but why wait?

    Considering that WD leapt forward to 2TB drives ahead of Seagate, maybe we'll see 640 GB 7200rpm drives?

    Or is that still wishful thinking?
