    Maybe, but it will probably be more trouble than it’s worth.

    You might be able to get the hard drive to work, but you’d need to buy a mounting kit like the Startech BRACKET25 2.5″ to 3.5″ Hard Drive Adapter kit to get it to even work.

    Laptop drives tend to be slow and small, so that money spent on an adapter kit would probably be better off put toward a new hard drive for the desktop.
