Yup.


...but uh...doesn't the 551 only have one drive bay? Did you maybe get a model with a SSHD hybrid mechanical drive? That has a small SSD inside the drive for caching (aka loading frequently used things faster).

There's also a small mSATA port for a tiny cache drive to the right of the RAM slots as well.
