It looks like it has SATA ports so yes a SSD is possible.

I would more worry about the form factor of your computer, if its small form factor you may have to look into what you can fit inside of your machine.

 

Edit: seems possible, here is a video on the micro version:

If you have the full size desktop version it does become easier, but a SSD will work regardless of what version you have.

 

You just may need a drive bay adapter of some kind thats all

Well if possible I would open the desktop up, take a picture of its inside and outside and show us what you have.

Granted a drive bay adapter is not expensive but we will need to see if you can slot it in.

Yeah i would trade that platter drive out for the solid state drive, you dont have too many SATA ports so you will have to trade out one of your drives.

One of the drawbacks to small form factor sorry to say.
