Main Question or Discussion Point

I have three laptops which no longer work. I want to take the hard drives out of them and make external hard drives for my new laptop. What do I need to do? I have no idea where to even start.

search your favourite online computer shop for drive enclosures. You will probably need ones that accept 2.5" drives (drive form factor commonly found in laptops) and support either USB 2.0, IEEE-1394 (aka Firewire) or both. Or head to your favourite brick and mortar computer shop and show them what you need. They should be able to hook you up fairly easily.
