    The best place I know of is TigerDirect.com. They have the best deals. Otherwise eBay or use Froogle for a Laptop SATA enclosure.

    I was looking at a Macally FW/USB enclosure for ~$28 from newegg.com this morning.

    The MB drive is 2.5" SATA.

    That newegg one won't work though--it takes an IDE drive, but the MB's is SATA

    DOH!!! Yes, you are correct. I have a 100GB 7200RPM IDE drive that I'm shopping for and was not actually thinking of a MB drive when I posted that. Sorry for the confusion.
