  1. Power usage, cache size, and noise level. PErhaps more but that was all I was able to identify quickly. Which one is better depends on the what you are trying to accomplish.
  2. The "blue" (KS) is the standard drive and will clearly outperform the "green" (CS) drive. The green drives are designed to be low power hard drives and as such sacrifice performance.

    If you're looking for a system drive or program drive, get the KS/blue. If you're looking just for a storage solution for media, etc. the CS/green will suit you just fine and save some power.
  3. Drives are already the bottleneck in any computer, so go for the blue model !
