UMPC Configuration Considerations

Darryl at Geekzone has posted his considerations about what is the best hardware configuration at TabletKiosk web site. I agree with him when he said that more memory is better but completely disagree about his HDD considerations. According to what I have found and posted here, the Hitachi 7200 RPM HDD used by TabletKiosk does not use a lot more battery than the 5400 RPM one or even the 4800 RPM. But... the performance of a machine with a 7200 RPM vs one at 5400 could be up to 30% higher. So my advice is: go for the faster one!
