There are also test adapters which you can connect the disk with, but that is for short term use.

I know that newegg carries the adapter, but I am not sure if repair places would carry. I suspect you would have a better chance of finding an enclosure than the adapter and for long term use, that would be better.
Radioshack's web page shows that they carry disk enclosures.

The laptop drive (2 1/2 inch) can be attached as a slave in a desktop using a adapter like THIS.
You can also put the drive in a enclosure (as suggested). Make sure it is an enclosure that will accept the 2 1/2 inch drive. Generally what is used is a USB enclosure like These. The drive you showed is a ide (eide).
