I'm more than slightly lost with your response. What are both 720 RPM Drives the ones that the Original Poster Asked about are both 5400 RPM Drives the Seagate is listed as this

Hard Drive Specifications

Enclosure Internal
Capacity 500 GB
Speed 5,400 RPM
Interface SATA
Form Factor
Application LAPTOP
the WD Specifications are

Hewlett-Packard (HP) 575402-001 - 500GB 5.4K RPM SATA 2.5" Hard Drive (HDD)
Hewlett-Packard (HP) 575402-001 - 500GB SATA Hard Disk Drive (HDD)

Both drives asked about are 5400 RPM Drives. I'm not disputing the benefits of faster HDD's in NB but when the OP asked about 2 particular drives I don't see the point in answering a question about drives that they didn't ask about.

They very specifically asked about 2 specific Drives and not any others so I assume that they have a reason for wanting to buy from this supplier and wants one of the drives that they asked about.

For that Reason I didn't make any mention of Samsung, Hitachi or other drives just the HP Supplied Seagate and the HP Supplied WD that they asked about.
