I need it to be 7200 RPM and needs to be either 750GB or 1TB.
As much cache as possible please....
It has to be Amazon.


I was looking at this one, but i have no experience with this brand.

That's what I'd buy if it was me. It's WD's largest black series drive. I've had the best luck with WD over Seagate and Toshiba drives.
to be honest know i dont im on the eastcoast i personally have no reason to know the other time zones .... i dont travel or nothing -AnybodyN9NE

What are you doing with the laptop to need that much space?

Since you are requiring a 7200 drive, and tons of a cache, any SSD will blow the HDD out of the water performance-wise. But they do cost a lot more. A 250GB SSD will run around $150, and you could then have a large external USB3 drive for media storage.
