Default (?)Laptop SATA's & other small parts....

Kinda hard to talk about stuff after an intro like that...
...Anyways, I'm obsessed with putting my own stuff together, especially of late. Right now I'm wanting to get a laptop drive to use (my reasons are my own... heh, heh), and I'm wondering: is the "laptop" (2.5") SATA connection the same as that in a regular PC? And what about the power supply?
...And while I'm at it, does anyone know of a (simple) way of connecting a LCD display, like those found in laptops, to a typical connection? A thought of mine for that unspoken thing is to have a parallel circuit for both the vid-out and at least one of the built-in displays (i.e. they would use the same line, thus produce the same output), but I can't tell whether or not the pin-outs are even remotely compatible.
Thanks again; any help is appreciated (especially about the drives).
