Why not go with a straight SSD? If she's coming from a 120GB drive, a 240GB SSD may be enough space - and it'll be significantly faster than the 5400RPM or even the Momentus.
Agreed. SSD's are getting very inexpensive (compared to last year anyway) and I seen a 240GB going for $129 in Canada a couple weeks ago.
Try Black Friday, you might score big.
