2.5" form factor for your SSD. Drive thickness can be 7mm or 9.5mm, page 2 of product description in service manual. You can use any capacity you'd like however since your touch enabled laptop has one physical placement within the laptop. You could remove the Optical Drive and get a 9.5mm caddy and have the SSD there while you get a larger mechanical drive in the original HDD's location.
