I bought this SSD for my desktop
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I really like everything about it, price, speed, space, etc. and I am thinking about putting it into a laptop. Will it fit in most standard laptop drive slots? I'm planning on buying a low price laptop and replacing whatever HDD it comes with. Will the same SSD work for the laptop or is there a laptop specifc SSD I would have to buy?

It will fit and work the same way. Hard drives have desktop and laptop variants with the desktop versions physically much larger; most SATA SSD are in the 2.5" "laptop" form factor. Newer desktop cases use special mounts or an adapter can be used with a standard desktop case to fit the smaller drives.
