SATA has better transfer rates, and allows better airflow in the case. But you won't see much real world difference, if any.

Since hard disks have yet to reach transfer speeds that tax ATA-100 interfaces, there is no practical difference in usage of the two types of drives. The real-world performance will depend on the physical characteristics of the drive, same as it has for some time now. :)
