WD Advanced format 4K worth the prenium in a mainstream laptop?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I want to change the HDD of my new I5 (running W7) laptop since it's seem to be the worst bottle neck I've seen so far...

I was wondering if the new WD Advanced format drive was worth the price difference VS a "normal" one?

It's just a mainstream Laptop; I need faster access (SSD are not a option).

Thank you,

Well it will be faster than the current one. if you can afford it then give it a try for the WD Advanced.
