If ur laptop comes with sata.
And if ur laptop can handle an ssd then, is a good idea to replace hdd with SSD.
It will speed up your laptop,lengthen its battery life and reduce temperature.
BUT big size ssd cost a lot!
You can use a medium size,fast ssd for OS and programs and a BIG external HDD for backup and everything else.
