matter that much for the tool set mentioned

Most likely it does.

Software today is huge.

Try count how must space the software use.

The stuff you use will need to be read from the hard drive.

Good point. This is a really difficult question, I know, since we
probably won't be able to compare two otherwise identical systems wrt.
RPM. Perhaps what I was trying to ask is that if going 7200 RPM would
decrease search speeds in a way which is noticeable in the mentioned
tool set, especially NetBeans, which I guess does a lot of searching
while editing (which is my primary concern). Risking being called lazy,
I'm not going to quantify all bits and bytes to be transferred, but I
must say that I am interested in the subjective experience. So, are you
running 5400RPM and finding the NetBeans editor a bit sluggish? Or are
you running 7200RPM and finding no delays whatsoever while typing?

You can pick the test at:,53.html
that you think reflex your usage.
