    Yes and no. It depends... As long as it matches the SATA interface that the 3455 uses, it should be possible. I haven't used a 3455, but I'd expect few problems.

    In most cases yes it will fit. You just need to make sure you have an open bay for the drive or you will need to transfer you current drive contents. A lot of the all in one units don't allow much wiggle room for upgrades.

    Last time I opened the back it looked pretty empty. I know I might need a new cable since the hdd and the ssd probably use a different interface (right word?).  I just want sure if I would need a whole new kind of bracket/mounting system.

    I also would not need to transfer the hdd contents since it keeps telling me the hard drive is no good so I have done a bunch of stuff to that a d now it has a clean version of Windows and that's it.
