It entirely depends upon the make and model of the laptop. Newer, ultrathin laptops don't use the 2.5" drive, so they wouldn't work with this kind of drive. Laptops having optical drives might be the place to start, unless they already have an SSD. Another option would be to look at older used or refurbished laptops that would greatly benefit from (inexpensive) ultrafast storage and perhaps an increase in memory.
Actually installing the SSD can be very difficult to quite easy with the right tools. I'm using a 2012 Lenovo T430 because I wanted a laptop that is easy to swap drives, yet is still powerful enough for daily computing. There are tutorials for drive replacement, some including videos, available on the web: use them.
Look for a laptop having SATA III drive mounts, preferably with USB 3.0 capability.
