I want to buy a lenovo Ideapad 330s 15IKB 81F500GMIN from amazon. It has 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD and a AMD Radeon 540 4GB graphics card. I want to know the following details:

1) if i can increase the RAM and what is the maximum "additional" RAM i can add to it?

2) if i can increase the storage with a SSD and what is the interface(PCIe or SATA) used here?

3)whether the system will support Intel Optane 16gb memory? Do I need any BIOS update? Will the slot used for SSD upgrade be enough for the Optane memory.

That laptop supports up to 20 GB DDR4 RAM.

4 GB default RAM is soldered and in the other slot, you can use up to 16 GB DDR4 RAM.

Yes, both m.2 and 2.5 inch form factor SSD's are supported.

However, for little bit more you can get laptops with Nvidia MX 150 which is a lot more powerful than the Radeon RX 540.

MX 150 vs R 540

for example: Acer Swift 3 15 which by default comes with either 16 GB Optane + 1 TB HDD or 128 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD.

No need to upgrade later.
