hi, Been checking on getting another laptop HDD, the one in there now is 60b, so i thought while i am at it I will go for 80gb..just on the point of ordering, when I realized that a short while ago i ordered a mini external drive and that is 80gb, so i have just prised the case off, and it looks like a normal laptop drive, now i am toying with the idea of nailing that into the laptop, but, it has a speed of 4200rpm, for general use would i really notice the difference between that and one running at 5400..thanks

Yes.

I have upgraded a few laptop hard drives and if you can get the 5400 with a 8Mb cache, you will be able to see the difference.

Thanks, this one has the 8mb thingy,so it looks like back to the drawing board..
