    Mac Pro Hard drive option question

    Scotch Wayfarer
      I hope this is an appropriate question to ask as there seems to be a great variety of expertise on this website. I am online right now on the Apple website in the process of ordering a Mac Pro. There are several "upgrade" options for me and I'm not sure it's worth it or even what it is.

      I plan to order the 15" 2.4GHz Mac Pro. Also, I plan to use the laptop to edit videos and photos, etc. for leisure.

      Upon checkout there is a hard drive option to add more GB for the serial ATA. It says on the website that a Serial ATA hard drive gives you more space for data and applications. Choose among several capacities at drive speeds up to 7200 rpm. It comes with 200GB Serioal ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm, and there are two options to add - - is it worth paying for? Not sure what the extra give me?

       

      comes with: 200GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
      option 1: 250GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm Add $50
      option 2: 200GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm Add $100
