Hi I think my hard drive is about to fail but I was hoping to replace with a solid state drive, 

is this possible and secondly can I have a small Solid State Drive for boot and operating system and then install an additional hard disk for storage?


if so what type of SSd can I put in I see there are multiple types these days

Its specs


It has  Ryzen processor namely AMD Ryzen™ 5 2500U Quad-Core (2 GHz base frequency, up to 3.6 GHz burst frequency, 6 MB cache) therefore it supports dual storage with M.2 NVMe/SATA drive + 2.5" HDD.


It has 1 TB 5400 rpm SATA now, you can add an M.2 SSD drive to your machine.
