Two slots are available , one is standard 2.5 inch SATA. The other is a half sized (not full) mSATA drive, though in order to access this slot, you will need to remove the palm rest. Unfortunately, half sized mSATA SSDs are not very common, you may be better off just getting a larger SSD or use an external HDD.

I can replace my Optical drive for a HDD Caddy right ? So I can have an SSD + HDD if that were the case
