i was looking at a computer i wanna get online, and it costs 225$ for a 250gb 5400rpm hard drive, but its 275$ for a 200gb hard drive at 7200rpm... whats the difference between the two? is the speed really important?

if your going to be exporting/importing or moving around large files than the higher rpm the better really

It really depends what your trying to do with the laptop. The speed is basically how fast it gets read unless you need a super high end computer you will be fine with the 5400 rpm. I have both speeds on two separate systems and i cant tell the difference.

Hope that helped

There are slight differences in speed - only slight matters of about 1-2 MB/s, though (depending a bit on the brand). It's reccomended that you get 7200rpm if you're planning to run a lot of games/applications because 7200rpm means a lot better access time (time it takes to find a file), while 5200 is by far good enough for file storage. Some fanatics will recommend 10000rpm for disks meant for OS, application and game usage.
