Yea, they are standard 2.5". Make sure you laptop drive is IDE tho. Would be ideal for a laptop.
You wouldn't have to wory about head-crashes and it would extend the battery life.

Aww. You could use a IDE\SATA converter like ebuyer.com/pro…617
but I doubt it would fit in a laptop.

God knows why they make these in IDE ...

Beware!

Avian securities published a report claiming that nearly 30% of all solid state drives sold by one "large computer manufacturer" were being returned due to technical failure and poor performance.

The manufacturer is alleged to be Dell, they deny that the return rate is 30% but they won’t say what it is.
