Would this work with a comptuer aswell as a laptop or not? Would it have to be a 3.5 for it to work with a Comptuer aswell as a laptop?

It'll work fine on both.

However, as I said earlier, 2.5" inch drives are slower, and tend to be noticeably more expensive.

But on the positive side, they are smaller, lighter, and consume less power - I've even seen models that work just off USB power, without the need for a power block.
