Actually, 4200RPM was used in 2.5" HD for notebooks of old...
And Romanian, so far I've yet to see any bigger 2.5" HD (laptop size) than
~120GB (costing 120-140eur here in Finland) so if you want 250GB, your only
choice is an external one. But I wouldn't use it for programs etc, only for
backups and maybe multimedia storage.
And, as it draws too much power to be supplied by the USB (or FW) ports on
that same laptop, it needs to be connected to the electrical outlet by it's
own power supply.
