Default Laptop HDD?

Hey guys.

I have a laptop that I am not using now, and I have the HDD out of it.

I was wondering if I can hook that up to a desktop like a normal HDD?

Thanks.

Out of interest would the HDD be much slower than a normal pc one, or does it all depend on the disk, sounds daft lol , but can you get laptop drives that run at 7200rpm? or does it produce too much heat.
