Oh, lol. I'm not sure which are the good ones, I'll leave that up to you. Just make sure the one you get is compatible with your old HDD. For example, assuming your old HDD is connected through IDE (ribbon cable), get an IDE to USB one. Read some reviews on them or something. Just make sure the one you get one that will work with your old HDD. The only things you need to check is size compatibility and connection compatibility.

Correct. The only other thing is make sure that the enclosure is the right size for the HDD. If the HDD doesn't say on it, measure it to confirm. It should be 2.5".

Edit: I'm going to watch a movie. Hopefully all of this information will be enough. Cya.

You hook it up to your new computer through USB.

Curious about what operating system you were running your dell. You will need to modify some security settings after you gain access to your drive.
