I used to have a portable WD 2.5inch drive and I took the drive out of the case and put it in a Laptop... Would this be able to fit in a laptop or is it a bigger 2.5?

Well, 2.5 inches is still 2.5 inches no matter how you measure it. So, yeah. Your only limitation would be by your computer in it recognizing drives that big that is connected via SATA or IDE. But these days I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Actually, there ARE problems with some of the 2.5" drives not fitting in computers -you DO need to get verification that it will fit in your comp. There are a few brands that do not fit in the old & new MBP's for instance. So, YES we do need to know about the measurements of the drives, because 1 does not always = 1, and 2.5 does not always equal 2.5/

Its a 12.5mm thick drive, i think most of the MBP's have 9.5mm thick drives. you can try and jam it in there if you like...
