Default Laptop hard drive w/enclosure?

I want to rip the home movies off my digital camcorder. My hard drive only have 5 GB on it, so I'm in the market for an external hard drive, however I hate the bulkiness and the need for an AC adapter. I've been exploring other options, including Nomad Zen 60GB MP3 player, but they don't work like a true hard drive where I need to rip the movies and save it directly on the external drive and not my HD first.

After reading a lot of the boards, someone suggested buying a laptop HD and a USB enclosure. My question is, will such a combo require an AC adapter and also is it plug and playable? Does anyone have one and care to share their thought on it? Thanks in advance.
