How to connect the internal hard drive of the Toshiba Satellite C55-B510 to other PC

My laptop—a Toshiba Satellite C55-B5101—does not turn on anymore. This laptop contains many critical information.

I tried a new power supply as that was the primary suspect, but still there is no indication of power.

I have no clear idea how to connect internal hard drive to my desktop.

How do I know what size of enclosure I need? based on Google there are 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch sizes.

Also is this an easy thing to do? I never removed an internal hard drive for a laptop.

I carry something similar to this: http://www.amazon.com/Generic-SATA-5-25-Cable-Adapter/dp/B000YJBL78

It is a USB to IDE/SATA adapter, so if I need to remove a drive to see if I can get files off of it due to the computer not booting, I can connect it to my laptop and grab the files that way...assuming that the hard drive isn't completely dead.
