Yes, you can replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SSD.
This one IMHO, provides the best performance for the price.
This is the 500 GB model...
Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply. I will try your suggestions.
I found a Crucial SSD drive at a lower price
I found a HP SSD drive at a lower price
Are they compatible?
Do you have a recommendation on 1 TB SSD drive?

You're very welcome.
Any 2.5" SSD will work.
You have to compare the read/write speeds of the models you are interested in.
For example the drive I posted has these read/write speeds...
Sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s, and sequential write speeds up to 530 MB/s .
The HP drive you posted has sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s, and sequential write speeds up to 515MB/s.
So the HP drive is really good, but falls a little short on the write speeds than the WD Blue one.
The HP drive in India seems to be a better bargain.
Here in the United States, the WD drive I posted is only 4418 Rupees ($59.99), so it is much more expensive in India for the same model.
1 TB...I found this similar HP drive to the one you posted...
READ WRITE SPEEDS: Sequential Read/Write Speeds up to 561 MB/s / 523 MB/s, an industry top leading reliability (MTBF) 2 Million Hours.
That drive costs $89.00 in the United States, where is costs the equivalent of $143 dollars (10,599.00 Rupees) in India.
This one is a very popular drive and costs less than the HP drive above, but it also has a little slower read/write speeds.
You'll have to go with what you think makes the most sense.
I think I would go with the 1 TB Samsung drive which in India seems to give you the best performance per rupee.
