Yes, but clearly you'd need to purchase the SSD and either install it yourself of have the Geek Squad do it. Also, you'll need to reinstall the OS with the recovery media.

I'm NOT an employee of Best Buy, or Geek Squad, though I did work as an Agent for a year 5 years ago. None of my posts are to be taken as the official stance that Best Buy will take on your situation. My advice is just that, advice.
Unfortunately, that's the bad luck of any electronic, there's going to be bad Apples... wait that's a horrible pun.

Yes we can. We carry a select few SSD's from Intel and our Geek Squad can get it installed and running for you. If you are purchasing a computer from Best Buy be sure to checkout our Tech Support service that would cover getting the SSD installed and running for you.

How long does it usually take?

I would triple check first to make sure the laptop you want can be upgraded.

 

Why not just buy a laptop with the SSD already installed?

Installation of a new hard drive depends on the appointments and the service requests your local Geek Squad precinct has that day and the whole week. You will be given an estimate of how long it takes. Sometimes they can do it the same day but it's subject to appointment availbility though.

 

If you have SATA, you can most likely upgrade provided that the drive is a common 2.5" ~ 3.5" enclosure inside your unit. I've not seen an SSD drive that has been larger in size.
