Removing the laptop hard drive. . .
and setting it aside will cause no problems, it's done all the time. Just be careful and wear an anti-static device or keep yourself grounded.
Now, what format is the PS3 drive, does it have an operating system that will boot the laptop? What size is the PS3 hard drive, as in physical size, as in will it fit into the laptop?
May I suggest you purchase an external USB-2 drive case, mount the PS3 drive in the case, and connect the case to the laptop.
