You should be ok with a 4200 rpm notebook drive. Just don't expect
massive amounts of recordable tracks at one time.
If you tune the system right you should be able to get 30 - 50 streams
The main factor is the throughput latency. New notebook drives are
pretty good for that these days.
If you have troubles then the usb external will probably work better.
Firewire even more so.

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street.
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before
the arrival of U.S. troops.
