Whether you can use one depends on which version of the system you have.

One version has a Celeron CPU (N30xx) and an embedded 32G eMMC drive - this one CANNOT  be upgraded to a 2.5" EVO SSD.

The higher line model has an i3 CPU and comes with a 500 G hard drive.  That model CAN be upgraded to a 2.5" EVO SSD.

Yes, the EVO will be immensely faster than a conventional hard drive.
