I'm looking for a new hard drive for my laptop. I want something 500GB +.. preferably 1TB. Also, 7200RPM if possible.

did you get any further in your research? I am in the same position and hesitating between the Samsung 7200 and 5400 drives such as these below. Not sure if the extra small spending for the 7200 does help a lot in performance, and on the other hand if the faster drives are not heating up more and are more likely to fail...
