I'm planning on buying a new Macbook Pro, and originally was going to get the 7200rpm 500gb option. I'd heard a while ago it will make computer games go faster (is this true...?). I've ALSO read that there are some issues with the 7200rpm 500gb drives and "clicking" as well as overheating and draining battery life faster as compared to the 5400rpm. Are any of these claims true? Does anyone know if running windows with bootcamp sees any of the above problems with the 7200rpm option in addition to osx?
Edit: At this point, I'm mostly interested in:
- How much does battery life change with the 7200rpm hard drive vs the 5400rpm hard drive?
