When is it safe to pull a HDD from an ultrabase series 3?

I have an ultrabase series 3 for my thinkpad x220. I replaced the optical drive with a HDD. Is it safe to pull out after I've unmounted it and clicked eject? Or should I wait until the computer is turned off?

Since it's a HDD, make sure to not do anything before the HDD has stopped running.
And as that's also a SATA drive, you could unmount/eject, but to be safe, I'd switch the laptop off first, then remove.
