Motherboard form factor is a pretty good determining factor, Small motherboard = not much space for RAM slots.
Ignoring form factors that are very unusual, or basically unused in modern PC building, here is the mainstream Motherboard sizes and RAM slots you will find on them.
mATX (what this computer has in it) - 9.6" x 9.6" - Micro ATX also called uATX by some MB manufactures - smaller form factor - 2-4 RAM Slots, pretty even split 2 or 4 slots.
ATX - 9.6" x 12" - Normal "full-size" motherboard - 2-8 RAM Slots (generally 4 or 8 slots, but for some ridiculous reason, sometimes only 2).
EATX - 13" x 12" - Extended ATX - 2-16 RAM Slots (8 is most common). 2 is even more ridiculous here as the board is really big & 16 is normally only on dual CPU boards
mITX - 6.7" x 6.7" - Mini ITX - very small - typically what is in HTPC (Home Theater PC), cases are normally to small to even fit a full size graphics card - 2-4 RAM Slots; almost always 2, 4 is done sometimes, but not often.
