One laptop I'm looking at has a 320 GB 5400 RPM Hard Drive, while the other has a 500 GB 7200 RPM. The size of the drive doesn't concern me.
I've tried to get a good grasp of the debate of "5400 vs 7200" through searches, but I haven't been able to find much at all.
So, I have two questions:
1. What exactly does the RPM impact. Is "performance" in regards to things like frame rate?
2. Is there a noticeable difference, in laptops, between the two, given that I will use it mostly for browsing, some multi-tasking, and light gaming?
