I haven't heard anything yet about hardware reliability / performance other than the slim loads things slightly faster. I do know that the slim can output HD audio over bistream while the fat can only do it over losless? Whatever the other option is, something starting with L. Also the slim can no longer install Linux, that's about it really.
If you have a network attached storage drive hooked up to your router the PS3 should detect it, you can just drop stuff on that from your PC and access it that way. The PS3 doesn't like folders though, sometimes it won't find stuff just because it's in a folder. I haven't really messed with the media server stuff much.
As far as hard drives go, there seems to be little performance gain by going up to 7400 RPM, so just go with whatever you can find or is cheaper. Stick to one of the more trustworthy brands though like Seagate or Western Digital (stock hd is Seagate 5400.3).
