Why is apple not offering 7200rpm drives in the new mac book pros? Any particular reason??

I have no clue. Well they are usually cooler, quieter and much of the "target market" probably can't tell the speed difference. I know people who have swapped in 7,200's. That's just my opinion or guess. ;)

Read somewhere that they eat into battery life compared to 5400s, and I expect that most mobile users would trade more run time for the small performance hit.
