Forum Question: 5400 rpm or 7200 rpm HD on MBP

The new MacBook Pros offer the following optons
750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 RPM
500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 RPM
Would there be a marked advantage to going with the 7200 rpm over the 5400? Use is used very often for digital imaging and post processing. i.e. Photoshop and similar software.
Thanks in advance for your help.

    You will find some disk access improvement, yes. Just like with processor speed and RAM, it is all a trade-off between your budget and performance. Whether it will be enough of a “marked advantage” is kind of subjective so it is hard to say.
