    Hi all:
    Just curious, what are the laptop PC out there on the market that come
    with the new Hitachi 7K60 (7200rpm) hard disk, or at least offer
    "options" to equip with this hard disk?? Thanks!

    Tomshardware.com has great review for this 7200rpm hard disk (2.5").

  2. laptops offered with 7200rpm drive option include:
    inspiron 8600
    inspiron 5150
    precision m60
    interesting none of the latitudes are offered with 7200rpm drive as an
    option... not even the models that correspond to the two inspiron models
    above... wonder if that is because of a supply issue or a reliability issue.
    perhaps they will introduce them into the latitude line once they are more
    readily available.

    Thanks! BTW, among these three models, for home office purposes (with
    some limited 3D gaming), which model might be a better choice (or have
    the biggest bang for the bucks??) Thanks!

  4. the inspiron 8600 is a wide screen performance laptop. a brick, weighs like
    7+ pounds.
    the inspiron 5150 is a regular screen performance machine. this is the best
    value of the lot. the screen is better suited for regular tasks like word
    processing, as it is taller than the wide screen i8600.
    the precision m60 is meant to be a portable workstation and is expensive.
    but there are many other models too.. just not that come with the 7200rpm
    drive.

    latitude is always the slower of the portables line to adopt newer
    technology, as it is usually targeted to business users who want to be able
    to hear that the only hardware that gets put in the machines is tried and
    true hardware that was tested in the bleeding edge technology platforms
    initially. Additionally, sometimes the Precisions take even longer to get
    the newest toys as some of the hardware has to be cleared for certification
    with ISVs for software apps.
