Then the note I read about the position of the disk is probably obsolete
and applied to that brand and model and not to others.

Dell apparently isn't afraid of selling PCs with HDs installed upside down by design. I have one, an Optiplex GX270 SFF, which when used with optional stand orients the HD and DVD on their sides, otherwise DVD right side up and HD upside down. I have at least two different models of external drive case that induce upside down use as well, with a fan aimed at the bottom of the HD such that few would place the case in use with the fan blocked by the surface on which placed in order to have the HD right side up.

In this case, I can place it both ways, horizontal or vertical. It is an external unit besides a laptop on a table. But vertical has the advantage, besides using less "table", that self cooling is better.
