The 120GB is a small laptop drive; the other two are Raptor models (10,000 RPM).

I may be wrong with some of the drives mentioned here, but try searching for the same or similar drives at newegg and tell me if you don't find cheaper prices - even with the shipping costs.

Not cost-effectively, no. You need to have both drives connected to transfer the data between them or write everything to storage media (DVD, tape drive, etc.) and re-copy all of that to the new drive (and hope it wasn't corrupted or lost in the process).
