Hi all,

i recently got lenovo y550p

i pretty fast laptop with i7- 720 quad core cpu and 1gb nvidia gt240m

the problem is it got 5400 rpm Seagate ST9500325AS hard disk

i don't know why lenovo paired a quad core cpu with such a slow hard disk

I am assuming that bench mark scores differ by large even in 7200rpm hdd 's

i don't want to go with ssd as of now as they are pretty expensive

will upgrading to a good 7200 rpm hdd boost by system performance?

is it worth upgrading? , if it worth upgrading which one should i buy and how much performance will i gain



so if it is worth upgrading suggest a 320 gb one with in range of 75-100 dollars range

thanks in advance

thanks buwish for replying

can any one just give me an rough figure, on how much am i going to have gain in performance

during

->boot up
->application loading time
->data transfer

will it be a good idea to buy a 7200 rpm hard disk or just wait for black friday to arrive or till prices on ssd fall reasonably and load system with an ssd
