Default What enclosure? Please Help!

I want to take my old HP Pavilion dv6110us Entertainment Notebook PC's internal hard drive and turn into an external for the new computer im getting by using an enclosure. I just need help with figuring out what enclosure I need. You can look at the computers' specs at this website http://www.shopping.hp.com/shopping/pdf/rg254ua.pdf
It says it is a 100GB (5400RPM) Hard Drive (SATA) but the hardhat drive in it that came in it was a 170-ish GB. So please help!

I am not sure what kind of hard drive enclosure I need to turn the internal hard drive from that laptop into an external hard drive for the new computer I am getting.

No, it gets power via USB and the cases usually have some form of heat sink built into them.

Ok, thanks. I just wanted to make sure I got the right thing since I have never done an enclosure before.
