We have had a lot of success with recovering data from failed notebook IDE hard drives by using a USB external drive enclosure and hooking them up to another machine.

Our latest standard notebook has a 60GB SATA HDD ( the momentus 7200.1 from Seagate).
What sort of device do I need to hook one of these puppies up to another machine ?

You can connect them directly to a machine with SATA connectors on the motherboard, but you will have to open up the case.  Some machines have external SATA connectors right next to the USB connector, but those are fairly new.  You will also need an SATA power connector; fortunately, those adapters are cheap: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16812104652
