When I purchased my T500 a few months ago it was not offered with a 7200rpm 320gb, so I ordered it with the cheapest drive and bought a Western Digital drive, and installed it myself.  It is very quiet, with only very quiet sounds when actively working, like when defragging.

 

It was a huge speed boost, as well.

I know SSDs are getting a lot of attention now, but I feel that the quality SSD drives are still too much money for the benefit gained.
