It's been noted somewhere in a review, that this is thicker than a standard 2.5" drive. So wouldn't fit in a laptop if that was your plan.the actual mechanics are housed in a 2.5" HDA drive with a 15mm z-height, similar to standard notebook hard drives--only taller.
Found the quote I was looking for, it was via hot hardware.
Or you could have found it on our review on page one in the second to last paragraph
The VelociRaptor VR150 hard drive is not actually a 3.5" hard drive as one would expect. It's actually a 2.5" HDA drive! If you are thinking about sticking one of these drives in a notebook you might want to think again as the 15mm z-height is higher than a standard notebook.
