I have recently purchased a TC1100 with a 40 GB drive, and I now intend to upgrade the drive to the new Hitachi 7K60 7200 rpm drive. I am curious whether any other TC1100 owners with the Centrino model have done such an upgrade. More specifically, I would like to know from those who may have done this upgrade what kind of performance gains they have experienced as a result of the upgrade.
I would also like to know if there have been any heat issues by upgrading to the faster drive. Judging by the reviews at Tom's Hardware, I note that the drive is quite energy conscious and does not appear to be a "hot" drive.
