What are your thoughts regarding this type of HDD? I am going to pick up a laptop in the next week or two, and the 5400 RPM HDD is just way to damn slow. SO I figured I pick up an XT drive. SSD's are way out of my price range for any viability so that is out of the question.

I looked at some reviews a couple weeks back, and the 7200RPM WD black drives are faster than the XT.

I ended up not being able to afford it for the laptop. I just stuck in a 320 Seagate Momentus in it and it is doing quite well with just that drive.

It's not a bad drive:

But like others mentioned the newest 7200RPM notebook drives are no joke and cheaper.
