Yes, you can replace the existing HDD with a 2.5" SATA SSD or HDD, but I would highly recommend a SSD.  

 

Just follow the Lenovo instructions starting on pages 31-38 of the B50-30/B50-30 Touch/B50-45/B50-70/B50-80 Hardware Maintenance Manual for the steps to remove the old HDD and install the news SSD or HDD. 

 

If your old HDD still works, you can obtain a USB 2.5" SATA drive enclosure to hold your old HDD so you access the files stored on it, or use it a an external HDD.
