7200 RPM laptop HDD vs 7200 RPM desktop HDD
Aug 6, 2012, 11:17 AM
I was wondering if a 7200 RPM laptop HDD is necessarily slower than a 7200 RPM desktop HDD.
I Googled and read a lot of conflicting views so I was hoping the Community can please answer my concern.
I honestly don't really see a difference.

If they are identical in aspect of everything
then sure there is no difference if they are identical. But it also depend on rest of specs.
