Is my netbook Hard Drive compatible with any other laptops?

I have a 11.6 inch Aspire V5 laptop. I plan to replace b/c it's falling apart. But I have alot of important files and installed programs.
Would the hard drive be compatible with any other size and make of netbook/laptop? Or would I have to buy the same exact model.

    If you have an 2,5" SATA drive it may be compatible with a new laptop but not with all since not all new laptops support 2,5" sata drives.
    Evan if the drive can be connected to a new laptop your Operating system might not boot with the new hardware.
    The best thing to do is to backup the things you need and copy it to your new laptop and reinstall the programs you need, you might need to check your license information for some programs.

    That's my 2 cents opinion.
