    According to the manufacturer's website, it is a 7,200 rpm drive.

  • Yes it will handle it. Ideally, you'd want something with a faster interface like the thunderbolt. Hard drives are used for storage and the only difference in speed (provided you have enough RAM) would be in loading the files into your project initially.
