    I just went with an 7200RPM with 8mb cache. That will cover any processing *most* people will do with a car PC. Loads full mp3 into cache so no real waiting foranything but maybe full ripped DVDs.

    If you want a really nice laptop drive, I would highly recomend the toshiba drive. Mine works excellent, its very fast and has a 16mb cache. the 40gb is around $85 and the 60gb roughly $130.

    Btw...your linkie goes to micro$haft. Weird!
