    I have decided to buy the 2.8 MBP model but have some questions about which hard drive to get. It comes with a 500GB 5400RPM HD, but to take off $45 bucks I can get a 320GB 7200RPM HD. (If I can save money its a plus :D)
    I prefer speed over space but is there a big difference between the two???

    Or does the extra 180GB make up for the speed???

    Also does the 7200RPM HD get really hot and uses a lot of energy??

    thank you all

    If you prefer speed then get the 7200rpm hard drive. It will give a good amount of speed boost. You can also later get an external hard drive if you want later on to expand your hard drive space.
