Notebook hard drive recommendation

Hi,
I'm thinking about upgrading my old 40GB 4200rpm notebook drive. My requirements are:

- Ultra ATA
- min 80GB
- a drive that does not heat much (cooling system in my notebook is not effective enough)

Any suggestions?

Thx

  1. heres one that should be a noticable jump in performance and capacity above your 40GB (though the 5400rpms might be the only problem, as far as cooling and battery life goes, but if its not a problem, then it should work just fine)

  2. Energy Consumption should equate fairly well to required heat dispenstation.
