You can(with a drive enclosure), but since that is a 3.5 inch drive, you will need a external power brick. For a laptop it is generally better to use an external 2.5 inch drive and enclosure since it will then get all the power needed from 1 or 2 usb ports.

Here are some enclosures that should work(3.5) Watch out for drive caddies on that page, they are not what you want. You want IDE->USB
