What's the speed of these drives? The WD Green is borderline intolerably slow at 5,400rpm (even with the 64MB cache).

5400 RPM? Comrades, that's 2000 speeds. I don't understand how anyone can tolerate it. I can barely tolerate 7200 RPM.

What I do want to see are ultrabooks with hybrid 7,200 (or 10,000) RPM drives. I think SSDs, but they're too expensive. And traditional HDDs are a bit too underwhelming. How about a tradeoff?
