HP 8710W Laptop HDD

Right then chaps.  My HP8710W laptop has a 250gb hdd in it.  

I'm looking at increasing this to 500gb+ and I'm looking for recomendations based on personal experience.  

Ideally, I'm after a 7200rpm drive to provide a bit of a speed increase as I'm going to be running VMWare Workstation on this.

If you want the ultimate in speed for running VM's get a (branded) solid-state drive. If you get say 128GB you can mount your old drive in an external carry and use that as bulk storage
