Hi all, my laptop screen broke so I've took the harddrive out and I believe to access it I need to get a external HD Case?

The harddrive is a Hitachi 5k320-250gb

I believe cases come in dif sizes, can anyone point me in the right direction as to what I need that will fit , thanks!

If the laptop drive is sata and you have a computer that takes sata drives, all you need is a sata cable then you can use it in the other computer.
I don't know what that means, is there not just a case I can buy to put it into and use as an external one?

I want to plug it into my iMac, is that 'Sata'?
Your hard drive is a 2.5" sata one, so you will need an enclosure to fit this size. An example would be this or this Iomax hdd enclosure.
