    Hello All. I have done some research into this question, but couldnt find a reasonable answer.

    Which Laptop HDD is better/faster? One has more cache, the other has more RPM.

    1.) 5400 RPM, 16MB Cache, 100GB, 1year warrany, Toshiba. $65.99

    2.) 7200 RPM, 8MB Cache, 100GB, 5 year warranty, Seagate. $109.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822146230

    The HDD must be ATA-6 / IDE.
    Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Since price is not a big deal, I am leaning towards the Seagate. I am not sure whether the extra cache on the Toshiba will be better than the superior RPM of the Seagate.
