Look in Device Manager under Disk Drives, then do a Google search for the model number that's normally listed there. That should enable you to find the specs for that particular model.
I received the 5400rpm 100GB Toshiba. I really think I need to upgrade to a 7200rpm, as this one's noticably not all that fast, although I haven't benchmarked it. I wish they would hurry with the 7200rpm perpendicular drives at 160GB+.
