Hi, Peter Parker
Here's the thing: I want to replace my HDD with SSD and take out the optical drive and replace it with HDD caddy. What's your opinion?
1. Is there any slot in my notebook for upgrade to SSD?
2. Does my notebook support SATA 3?
2. If there is not, which type of HDD caddy should I buy? As far as I know, there are 2 type of HDD caddy, 9.5mm and 12mm.

Using parts lookup page checked with the systemboard and does not show any other available port for storage:
There are not much success verified using the ODD space as HDD (usually with 9.5mm caddy). Although some modifications can be made similar to this video. On another video here can be another option but we cannot be sure that it would be the same for the 14AST variants.
Take time to review caddy option before any purchase.
Hope this helps answer your query.
