A few links to 2.5" HD tests that may be usefull for responding this
point :


Which feature the Hitachi Travelstar (ex IBM stuff) 7200 rpm, and the
Seagate Momentus 5400 rpm, compared to a classic 4200 rpm Toshiba disk.

Also at : 


The same two disks, as well as a fujitsu disk and many Toshiba ones,
altough the Travelstar mentioned there is not a 7200rpm one, but a 4200
rpm one.

All in all, the Seagate momentus seems to offer very good power saving
for a faster (5400 rpm) rotation speed and offering performance similar
to the 7200 rpm ones.
