7200RPM hard drive over 5200 - worth the extra cost on laptop (Dell m1330)
Posted on 2007-08-06
I'm thinking of getting a new Dell m1330 laptop which looks great.
Need help in deciding whehther I should add about 15% to the price for the following two benefits
2.2Ghz (T7500) (instead of a 2Ghz) Dual core
200GB, 7200RPM Sata HD (instead of a 160GB 5200 RPM).
In some ways they seem only minor increased for quite a different to the price. Years ago I read in laptops 7200 is pointless because it gets too hot to really acheive that speed but maybe that has changed now.
Also am I really ever going to notice the difference between 2 and 2.2?
The WHITE-LED option also bulks up the price and lead time, but I have read that is very much worth it.
Any opinions or advice?
