Im trying to buy a SSD for my aging laptop, what is the RPM equivalent in a HDD with a spinning platter for a SSD?

The question doesn't seem to make sense, what is it that you're actually trying to find out?

You'll find the claimed Data Transfer Rate figures in specifications for SSDs. Sequential Read and Write values give the same type of performance comparison as with platter drives (DTR in MB/Sec). RPM was an indicator of potential performance, but real world results depended on the data density of the platter surface material. Respectable 7200 RPM drives with high data densities could equal or better 10000RPM WD Raptors on simple sequential read/write benchmarks.
