I track the prices of the Fujitsu and Hitachi 4200rpm drives here in Oz
from time to time, and while they remain cheap, they are also proving very
hard to find compared to 5400rpm units. (my domestic CFO has said until we
resolve some household debt issues wrt the wine cupboard, this kind of
single user spend will not be voted through the house ways & means

I think we may want to document the required power-draw issues as much as
speed because if they do release low-power 5400rpm units, the 4200s may
well disappear sooner rather than later.
