Make sure you get the right size enclosure, normally laptop drive will be 2.5 inch, shouldn't cost more then 10 pounds.
The laptop harddrive will then show as an ordinary drive and you can copy off whatever you need.

You can get a little circuit-board adapter that will adapt an IDE 2.5" drive to a standard IDE cable.
Newer notebooks are now using SATA drives. Don't know anything about the form factor. But I imagine there is a similarly-priced adapter board or cable available for these as well. (That is, to plug into a SATA port on a desktop.)
