A question about installing a SSD on a HP ProBook 440 G1

HP Recommended
HP ProBook 440 G1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

A friend gave me his old notebook and I want to know if I can install a SSD on it. I think this cannot install a M2 bc it's an old notebook, I think the only way to do this is removing the CD reader, am I wrong?

Can y'all suggest me models of SSD that can fit in this notebook? Please

Sorry if my english is a bit clumsy, it's not my native language

Its manual

 

            http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03943657.pdf

 

Page 2 shows it supports SATA drives (7mm or 9.5mm thickness) therefore you can use 2.5" SATA SSD using

                      https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-mx500-ssd

                      https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/860evo/

            Or similar from reputable vendors.
                        One example (compatible drive, can use smaller/larger capacity)

Thanks for your answer! I have a last question

Can I remove the optical unit and replace it with a 2.5" SATA SSD using a caddy? Can it be a SSD of 250GB? 

The manual says that this notebook can only recognize drives of 320GB and higher ones.. Or these are the values if I wanna replace the disk the notebook came with from factory?
