Default new macbook pros

i am considering a new 17" macbook pro. you can get up to a 250 gig hard drive, which would be nice, but it is only 4200 rpm. now, i have and always will record my audio to an external firewire drive. my question is, will the 4200 rpm drive slow down protools at all? i am planning on packing the thing with 4 gig of ram. your thoughts...

Default Re: new macbook pros

Since I don't ever keep data on my internal drive - I went with a smaller sys disk at 7200rpm rather than a larger one at 5200rpm when I bought mine.

I have all my apps including Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office on the sys disk and have used only 35Gigs. So for me there is no reason to have a large internal drive, I'd rather have the speed.
