Default Can my laptop take another hard disk?

I am curious as to whether my laptop can take another hard disk so I could perhaps add a solid state drive for the OS then have the current primary 640GB drive for data? Is there a way of finding out if it has two slots? Its a Dell Studio 1558 (15")

Cheers.

From what I read, only the Latitude 15" has two slots. You could always go with an external, though.

I considered it but then it is a case of it being impractical to carry around another drive with me, I'm gonna open her up later and have a look, if it does.. I will be a happy man

Won't be overly sad but it would be useful to have the OS on a SSD just for speed
