Default Compaq Presario hard drive in a dell laptop?

I was told I may be able to put the hard drive from my Compaq Presario
laptop into a Dell laptop. Does this sound right? Is the architecture
similar in laptop hard drives as it is in desktops?

Thanks
Brian

The design of 2.5" PATA drives for laptops is standard across makes.

The degree of difficulty involved in performing the transplant
depends on the specific laptop models involved. With a smidgeon of
mechanical skills/intuition on your part the swap should work fine.
