imo 7200 won't cost you that much over 5400, and you WILL see a difference if you ever run something a little more intensive. So for me, I'd say go with the 7200 model.
If you can't afford it, then obviously don't. If you can, then it's worth it. Even in just general usage, you should see some performance gain. e.g. installation times, system load time, etc.
