Hi:

 

It has to be a SATA 2.5" drive.  Your notebook has no M.2 slot for a SSD.

 

I don't know what storage capacity you need, but if you can live with 500 GB, this drive provides the best performance for the price.

 

Amazon.com: Western Digital 500GB WD Blue 3D NAND Internal PC SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s, 2.5"/7mm, Up to...

 

The 1 and 2 TB drives are pretty expensive and I don't know if it is a good idea to put a lot of money into such an old notebook.

Hi:

 

You should be able to replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with any brand/model 2.5" SSD.
