Seagate 4 TB for laptop. Can I use it?

So I'm trying to build a gaming/school work computer. I want to have a good amount of space for both of those things (I like to maximize). Also if there is anything else that could fit in a laptop (RAM, Motherboard, CPU, etc) I go places a lot so a laptop is preferable.

A 4 GIG SATA Drive would have to be a 3.5 inch drive which runs on 12 V DC

So besides the fact that it will not fit into a NB it has a different voltage so the NB can not power it either so over all I would say that No it's not going to work.

To get any large drive to work with a NB you would have to fit it to a Powered USB Case and carry the case and Power Supply with it at all times.
