Yes, but you'd need to disable the Intel SRT first, in the BIOS.

You may find it's a better idea to have an mSATA SSD for the OS, programs, and other frequently used stuff, plus a big HDD for data.

Thank you very much.And again lets say i`ve putted mSATA SSD and regular SSD (I will not have a space for reg. HDD).I heard that SDD better and faster than any reg. HDD that`s why i wanna to upgrade on SDD and remove HDD.And just today i`ve find out that i also have a space for mSATA SDD.I just didn`t know if they will actually work normally together as two separate drives-can you answer on that please.

They will work together as separate drives if you disable Intel SRT in the BIOS.

I'd still suggest getting a big mSATA for fast stuff, plus an HDD for media.

You can now get 1TB mSATA drives.

You won't be able to upgrade the GPU - it's soldered in for 99% of laptops, including yours.

Nope, the HD5650 is soldered onto your motherboard.
