Speed/energy performance of a 7200 laptop hdd?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Now that MBP's have a 7200rpm drive, I'm tempted to go for the option. Drives are the slowest part of any computer, and the speed-increase should be measurable.

But it also takes more energy to spin up and off. Would this be measurable as well?
