hmm... did anyone recognize the laptop is really quiet (nearly no sound)? And you're not getting hot hands, at the left side over the hdd, if you're typing. I read about people putting in a 7200rpm drive and getting a warmer left hand (not really hot, but warm!) and are able to hear the harddisk while working, but nothing else (very quiet fan?)
I think the harddisk is not only a slow one but also an extremly quiet one? So it was maybe not a fault, but a have-to for acer to keep the nb silent? (if you don't need a silent notebook, it's no problem to replace it, but for businessmen silence is more important than a two second faster OS loading and so on... )
Also the batteryusage is higher for faster harddisks. So, is it a bug or a feature?
your opinions about that reason?
