Here's the Manual:
Since yours has an i3 processor you have 2 slots:
So 2 slots in the position shown above. For you maximum memory would be 32 gigs: 2 modules of 16 gig DDR4-2400 SO-DIMM.
Optane "Memory" is a misnomer. An Optane module actually occupies the M.2 slot as shown above. An Optane module is nothing other than a small capacity...16 or 32 gigs usually...PCIe/NVME M.2 SSD which works with the mechanical hard drive to speed it up. I guess they call it "memory" because adding one has an effect on the system kind of like adding RAM. It does greatly speed up the hard drive to where it works much more like an SSD overall. But using that slot to install an actual PCIe/NVME main bootdisk of 256 or more gigs is even much much faster than that.
Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.
