Default Momentus XT - Better for use in desktop or laptop?

I've got a Momentus XT 500GB in my desktop, and just received a new in package Momentus 750GB 7200rpm 2.5 to replace the one from my laptop.

I was playing with the idea of swapping out the Momentus XT and putting it in my laptop as it may increase the boot or return from standby time and either selling the 750GB or putting it in my desktop.

What are your thoughts?

Tested one in a desktop once and really wasn't impressed with the results.

Definitely use it in a laptop
