mSATA slot on a Lenovo Z500 notebook

I have a Lenovo Z500 with the folowing specs: i5 ivy, 8 gb of ram, 1TB HDD and Nvidia GT740. A saw that some models of Z500 came with a small mSATA SSD for cache, mine didn't. My question is if there is a mSATA slot on any Lenovo Z500, because that would be in handy. Thank you and have a nice day. (sorry if I wrote something wrong, english is not my native language)

There may not be the msata connector soldered to the board.

To be able to check if theres any msata slot do I have to take off the keyboard in order to disassembly my laptop?

You can also look at the specification. However, it is not as accurate as the ocular inspection of the motherboard.
