12" Powerbook spec info needed (HD specifically)

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I've been eyeing on the 12" and now I'm deciding whether I should take the discounted 1.33Ghz for $1299 or 1.5Ghz. My question is, who make the 60GB 5400rpm:

Aple info: 60GB, 80GB or 100GB 5400-rpm Ultra ATA/100 hard drive with Sudden Motion Sensor (12-inch models)

My intention for the laptop was going to be to swap the OEM HD with the following drive from OWC:

60.0GB Hitachi/IBM Travelstar 7K60 ***7200RPM** 8MB Data Buffer ATA/6 9.5mm UltraSlim 2.5" NoteBook Drive. 3yr Hitachi Warranty. (HIT08K0939) more info...


IThis drive is ATA/6 vs. Apple's OEM Ultra ATA/100. I would like to know how fast the OEM HD is complared to th 7200rpm Travelstar. Any gurus out there that know, please give a shout!

    FYI, you can get the same drive from www.zipzoomfly.com for around $150 and it comes with the FULL three-year Hitachi warranty and not an OEM warranty which = no warranty to the end user.
