Enclosure for 2.5 SATA Hard Drive

I need to remove some files from my hard drives before sending my laptop in for service. My drives are Seagate Momentus 2.5 SATA. They came installed in a new laptop I bought from Hypersonic PC. I just bought it about three months ago.
Will the average USB 2.5 hard drive enclosures most places have for sale work with these drives, or is there a special enclosure out there somewhere I haven't located yet? Most of the drive enclosures I have found list the size drive they can handle (up to 80 gb, up to 120 gb, up to 200 gb, so on). Some say they will work with any 2.5 hard drive.
My laptop is dead and I have to send it back to be repaired, but I have financial files and work files I want to delete first. The product descriptions for the enclosures aren't very detailed, and I want to make sure I get the right one before I order it.

If the enclosure utilizes 2.5 sata drive, then it will work for you but there are not many I have seen out there for sata drives.

Thanks, I am still looking, but I wish the product descriptions were more specific, and had an actual list of drives that the different enclosures are compatible with.
