Is the RPM of the hard drive that important?
I am trying to decide which hard drive upgrade to get for my future new Mac Mini model A1347. I would like to get as much storage as possible, of course. I see that I can get 500GB at 7200 RPM or 640GB at 5400 RPM.
Will I notice that much difference in speed between these two drives? I don't work with huge files, but I do often have several applications open at a time and switch between them. I plan to max out the RAM at 8GB, eventually.
