Hi:

 

You can replace the 1 TB mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SATA SSD.

 

You would also need a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter so you can properly secure the smaller SSD in the drive bay.

 

You didn't mention what capacity SSD you want, but I recommend the Western Digital Blue 2.5" SATA SSD's in a storage capacity that fits your needs and budget.

 

Western Digital - WD Blue SSD - Disque SSD interne 2.5" SATA 500Go 3D NAND : Amazon.fr: Informatique

Hi @Ahmed136   @Paul_Tikkanen

Check, but you might be able to keep the HDD, in addition to the SSD
the document suggests that you have two locations, and models in the list are indeed with two disks
Sorry, for this intervention @Paul_Tikkanen  but it can be useful to have both!

Have a good evening
