You can identify the hard drive using the Google Images link below, but there is really no need to physically destroy it unless you work for a secret government agency.

Instead, you can use a program like

KillDisk

to reformat the hard drive in such a way that the data on it is unrecoverable. That way you can donate your old computer to someone who might be able to get some useful life out of it.
