    I just switched from a powermac to a Macbook pro and I have a couple of SATA drives in the old powermac that I'd like to use on my laptop. Can anyone recommend a cheap/reliable enclosure?

    Thank you!

    yeah that looks liek a 2.5" i could be wrong tho and it also doesn't come with the power cord. I just got one for about 25 bucks the brand it's smart-drive? doenst look like the best out there but from what i heard it's pretty reliable..

    It is powered by twin usb. It would have been nice to get a power cord as well- but I am sure I have one around that will work.

    Oops, sorry I should have specified. They are 3.5" drives.
