i am thinking of getting a larger harddrive for my laptop & thought i could make use of the old harddrive

Perhaps these are more reputable than the above company (which was the first google result!)

Only way is to put it in a USB2 Laptop caddy and run it through the USB3 socket. Did not know they did them above. But I got a caddy from Computer Fair for £4.99

Or get one of these, (the first one, £20.95). This is what I use.

You can connect anything IDE to any computer via the USB port.
