Upgrading Processor Option

HP Recommended
HP ENVY Curved 34-a010 All In One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

In the product specifications page, I see under the processor (currently have a Intel i5-6400T) that there is a processor upgrade information section and it lists out an additional processor. The Intel Core i7-6700T.  I know my computer is 5 years old now and it's begging for some more speed.  I love my monitor as it's the biggest that is out there and don't want to buy new computer yet.  Would it be worth the effort to upgrade to the Core i7?  How much would I gain by doing so?  Cost I am aware of but if it buys me a few years, I'm willing.  Thanks !!!

Hello
this is a fairly high cost, it significantly improves the speed of the computer, but after that it depends a little on the use which is made of it.
For a computer that is already at least 5 years old, I don't know if this is a good investment.

But for not too much money, you can upgrade it by replacing the mechanical drive with an SSD if possible.

but it's just a simple opinion

Attention
A bios update is not without risk!
Be aware that if you are offered to do so, it will be at your own risk, the computer may become unusable, think about it
