If you refer to the laptop casing you may find the hard drive is only able to fit in one orientation. –  washbow Mar 6 '13 at 23:04

This photo makes it clear that the connector is next to the outer casing of the laptop, and so if the HDD were connected in your photograph, the label side would face up, with the connector closer to the bottom of the HDD.
