Nope, it only works with the MacBook Air because it has higher power requirements over USB that the Air provides. This is similar to other manufacturer's drives made especially for their ultralights not working with other computers. Those often those have 2 USB cables that must be plugged into the notebook to provide that extra power or a specialty 2nd connector, for example.
