Default Re: 5400rpm vs. 7200rpm - big difference?

I posted the exact same question several months ago when the 5400 rpm drive in my Dell XPS 1330 died, and just let me tell you my experience. I ended up getting a Seagate 7200 rpm drive. The performance increase is hardly noticeable in the tasks that I use my laptop for. I personally can't notice any increase in noise. What is pretty bad is that in a hot summer like here, the laptop gets quite a bit warmer than with the old HD. Back when I got it in Spring it was OK though.

My .02....
