WD 750GB is a very fast 7200RPM hard drive

Quote:
With peak data rates up to 95 MB/s, the 750 GB top-of-the-line member in the Caviar SE 16 family is the fastest 7,200 RPM hard disk we've seen in our test labs to date. Even the median value of nearly 75 MB/s is on a par with that of the 10,000 RPM Raptor drive WD1500, and its minimal transfer rates clearly trump those of the competition.

Higher density disks can be faster depending on the platter setup.

Seagate's 7200.11 drives are supposed to get slightly over 100MB/s

No, for some reason, everyone started talking about desktop hard drives on this thread. Refer to the earlier posts for notebook drives.

you can also get 15,000rpm drives for desktops for those extreme reductions in loading times for games lol. SSD will also be faster then a traditional hdd for reading but I believe slower for writing

This is the fastest drive you can use in your laptop.

The 7200.2 series are faster and Hitachi's newest line is faster than the above as well.
