- Dec 14, 2008I remember reading some battery performanace tests, from Phronix I think, that
said 5200 rpm provided better life and the read write performace was not much
slower then 7200 rpm with larger disks since the data is packed so close
together on the disk platter. They also did not see any battery life
increase with solid state drives.
