Default eSata

I have an eSata port on my laptop and I was wondering if I could hook up this hard drive to it? What do I need to hook it up with?

Seagate ST2000DL003 Barracuda Green Hard Drive - 2TB, 5900 RPM, 64MB, SATA-6Gb/s at TigerDirect.com

You need an external enclosure. eSATA hase a bit of a different connection than SATA. You'll need power as well, which the enclosure will provide.

Any suggestions? on a cheap, but good one. I want it to look somewhat nice too, preferably black.
