OK, we have two opposite views on this subject. My personal experience, as I stated in the article, is that laptop drives "seem" slower that their desktop counterparts, even when other system elements are more or less equal.

But I am not a hard drive expert. I am however, curioius about this subject now that it is raised.

So, what is it? Smaller HDs faster or slower? And more importantly, why?
