A 2.5" drive will work in a desktop, but you may need a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter to fit it in an empty bay.

IMHO, the drive you're considering has all the disadvantages of a HDD and few (if any) of the advantages of an SSD. It's a solution in search of a problem.

It's a great drive for general use. I've had two of them. Don't listen to ram. As Hawkeye said, you'll need an adapter, it won't come with one. They're like $5 on Newegg, though.
