Here is the Service Manual:

 

Manual

 

See page 39. For those models that come with an mSSD drive it is a 32 gig module. You would have to install it and then use the Intel Rapid Storage console to accelerate the main drive with the mSATA drive. The mSATA drive cannot be bootable very easily. If you want to install the accelerator then this is the model to get.

This is a bigger one that would also work:

Any mSATA SSD will work. They are the same physical form factor and your laptop will accept them and run them. 

 

Here is a 120 gig:

A 240 for just $50 more:
