FYI: On my invoice it lists the drive like this: 341-2184 100GB HARD DRIVE,5.4K,I9300. I am assuming that this is in error and we should expect the 4.2K drive.
You can never trust those "help me decide" specs.
But that's the first I've seen the 100Gb showing as 5400. My order with the 100Gb showed 4200. Maybe they upgraded it since I ordered. I agree you can't even trust the invoice, so can anyone who received one verify this for us?
This was part of the reason I ended up with the 60Gb 7200. With that, for now at least, you are sure which drive you will get.
But a 5400 100Gb drive would have been nice.
It is also $80 more than the 60Gb 7200 now, so maybe it is 5400???
