the spindle is what the disk platters rotate about. its integral to the function of a hdd drive.

as far as spindle speed is concerned, this affects how fast the drive can access information.

there are 5400, 7200.2, 10000, 15000 and i believe there may be 20000rpm drives. the first 3 are commonly home usage.
