Laptop harddrive made into a portable HDD?

I have an old laptop harddrive I want to turn into a portable harddrive. I think all I have to do is put it in a case, right? Where can I get a decent case?

In most cases on any laptop that has a conventional hard drive), a 2.5 inch sata hard drive should work. ... This is a safe bet unless your next PC is a really cheap emmc based one (which has soldered on memory) or you have a ultrabook (which probably has no sata bay). If it has a hard drive, a sata drive will work.
