What laptop HD to get?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I want to change the HD in my IBook. It needs to be a 80 GB and preferally 5400 rpm. But besides that I haven´t got a clue.

So from the following list what is the best drive?

    I had the Hitachi 80GB 4200rpm drive installed in my 12" iBook recently. I stuck with 4200rpm in hopes of keeping heat levels acceptable and maintaining battery life.

    Performance seems better than the stock drive and I am very pleased with the upgrade.

    Hitachi Travelstar.

    Laptop Logic just compared it against the Seagate and the Hitachi was better overall.

    Note: They were comparing 7200rpm drives.
