Yes. Here is the Service Manual:




Start on p. 30 to remove the back cover. Inside see this:

You can install the best and fastest kind of SSD: PCIe/NVME M.2 "gumstick" SSD.



You can add in the M.2 SSD; keep the HDD. You need to move Windows to the SSD. We can help with that if needed. 

Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.
