    TRADE: LAPTOP HD 2.5" (30gb 4200rpm for 30GB+ 5400rpm)

    The drive is a Nov 2004 pull purchased last month but I think I want something faster.

    If you want less heat and more battery life, give me your 5400/7200rpm 2.5" and take mine!

    Also willing to do a partial trade for more GB

    this is not meant to be a thread crap, but i dont really understand what you're asking to trade. You would like a faster rpm drive (that costs more) in exchange for a slower rpm (that costs less), but you post this in mp3car forums, where battery life is not an issue.

    can you clarify? does the less heat matter that much in a car setup? can anyone contest to this?

    You are better off selling the drive and using the money towards a new drive. These drives (new) go for about $40 on eBay. I just bought one a few days ago.

    Of course I'm better off buying another and selling mine, that's the point of this "trade" threads! To make it easier for the 2 guys looking to buy and sell. Thanks for the advice.

    And I'm not sure if a 5400rpm costs much more than a 4200rpm, but if I am wrong, I will pay the difference, what do I care?
