Getting an external hard drive

That's just an enclosure. You'd need to buy a 2.5" (laptop sized) HDD to go in there. What you're looking at there is an external shell (enclosure) which then has the electronics to convert a SATA connector and power (like internal hard drives use) to USB3 (like external hard drives use).

You won't find a hard drive for that sort of price. And if you're interested in capacity, usually the larger 3.5" drives will offer more space for your $
