SSD hard disk in y560

Hi ! 

 

I have been reading  a lot on the forum the last couple of days about ssd hard disks, and have now decided that I want to upgrade my y560 with a SSD disk. 

 

And since my current hard disk is a 500gb 5400rpm, it would be great to upgrade it to a SSD disk, and i was wondering if it was possible to just buy a mSATA disk, and then put windows on the ssd, and then use the 500gb disk as a extra hard disk, inside the laptop if it is possible?

 

for instance:

would this fit in my lenovo y560 and is it possible to do like I want to Smiley Happy

 

my specs 
lenovo y560 0646

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 430 @ 2.27GHz, 2261 MHz

ATI Radeon 5730

4.0 GB - DDR3 SDRAM

500gb S-ATA 5400 RPM.

 

 

Yours Sincerelly

That's the recommended way to use the SSD, put the OS and all your program on it and basically use the other drive as a storage device. On youtube there is a good demo showing how much faster using this system is.

 

P.S. I'll try finding it, can't find that video stating what I posted but there are plenty showing similar
