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