    I am about to purchase an aluminum 15.4" Macbbok Pro. Should I get the one with the 250 GB 7200 rpm Drive or the 320GB 5400 Drive?

    It depends on what you will be doing. If you plan on doing video or audio editing, you will probably want the faster drive, but if need more storage space, then get the larger slower drive. Don't they offer a 320GB 7200rpm option as well?

    They do offer a 320GB 7200rpm. I don't need the additional capacity, but am worried that the faster drive may cause heating problems.

    Well if you don't need the additional space that puts the 320Gb out of the picture pretty easily.

    The 7200 won't cause a lot more heat than the 5400, minimal variation really.

    If you're not in need of extra space and you're concerned with heat then why not consider solid state drives?

    Solid state drive? Well......It would be nice but costs quite a bit more.....

    Faster Drive will eat up your Battery time faster.
