Indeed, but sometimes it is specified whether it is suitable for 2.5 and or 3.5 hard drive, so pay attention to that anyway!
Also prefer a usb 3 connector.
If you have any doubts (not always easy online) go directly to a store, if possible

Product Number
6YQ60AA

 

is it this one ?

 TE01-0014 Product Specifications

if so, you will have to check anyway
 you have a m2 ssd

motherboard specifications, Rother
there are sata slots on the motherboard, but I can't tell if there is an HDD cage
just as there may not be a power cable for the sata disk, you may need a particular cable (hdd power in the picture)
unless it is possible to use an adapter from the one in the dvd player, i dont know what is in place ..

in document we only have this:

Upgrading and Servicing Guide

Bummer.  I may be forced to buy a case.  My goal is to copy data from the previous PC HD to the new HD

I am not sure I understood correctly
but if you ever have no choice
You can buy an adapter to turn this hdd into an external drive, you can easily connect it to usb on this new computer

If your other hard drive is a SATA you can use an adapter just like this:

https://www.amazon.fr/Inateck-Adaptateur-Convertisseur-Alimentation-Externe/dp/B00N4JLNXM/ref=sr_1_6...

 

Simply search on the sales sites of your country
You can use an adapter with additional power, like this one
But there are some very simple without power, but it could work less well depending on the hard drive
You can also choose a case, more complete, in which the disc will be better protected.

Thanks for the response.  I'm in the USA and have a Seagate ST500DM02.  All I want to do is connect it to my PC, suck the data into a 3TB solid state, and I'm done with it.

It sounds like you're saying an SATA adapter is generic.  One adapter will fit all SATAs.  If that's true, I'm happy.  Do I have that right?
