I find the switch to a laptop drive interesting. As generally they do not perform as well as a full sized desktop drive. unless talking SSDs which are always faster. -- [65 Arcanist]Filan(High Elf) Zone: Broadband Reports
The difference is likely negligible in the real world. A 5400RPM drive sucks in any size. Meanwhile size and heat would and should be much improved. I'm assuming the 27" is still full size given the 3TB capacity. I can't imagine they're throwing in a gaggle of 2.5"ers.
