It is the 5400 rpm across the 3 models. Would have been nice to have had the 7200 tho.

Well British retailers are quoting the iMacs storage as follows:
Storage
*\t60GB 5400-rpm Ultra ATA/66 hard disk drive (1)
One of the following optical drives:
*\tSuperDrive (combination DVD-R/CD-RW drive; writes DVD-R discs at 2x speed, reads DVDs at 6x speed, writes CD-R and CD-RW discs at 8x speed, reads CDs at 24x speed).

if you do that you may as well upgrade the internal ram to 512, it is cheaper to upgrade then the notebook ram that is on the underside...
