Default Western Blue or Black HDD?

I'm looking to upgrade my current HDD that came with my Lenovo T61p. I've narrowed my choices down to either the Western Blue or Black HDD's, probably 320 GB or more. I'm looking for great battery performance and great speed. I know it's a fine balance, but after browsing Tom's Hardware HDD guide, these look like the ones to get...even over the Spinpoint M's. Thoughts? Oh, and I'm going to need a transfer kit too.

the black edition is faster but the blue may use less power

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD
