Depends on your laptop -- if you've got USB2 ports, you can get an 
external USB2 drive case.  Just make sure the internal connections are 
SATA and not IDE.  If you've got a firewire port, it's much faster, but 
the drive cases are getting harder to find as the manufacturers dumb 
their products down to the more pedestrian USB2.
