Get the ssd 100%. I would not go with a 7200 rpm drive over a 5400 rpm. Solid state drives are a really nice upgrade and you can search on google "ssd vs hdd" and you will see why. Just figure how much space you will need as solid state drives tend to cost more especially at the 1 terabyte range. I would recommend at least a 250 GB drive or 500 if you can afford it. Samsung is a good brand for those drives.
The performance you would get from going from 5400 rpm to a 7200 rpm is marginal compared to the ssd upgrade. Plus with an ssd there are no moving parts like Hdd. So expect better battery life, less noise, and less heat.
