Is it worth to upgrade?

HP 15-ra023ur
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, wanna hear an expert’s thoughts about upgrading ram from 1x4gb DDR3L-1600 to 1x8gb DDR3L-1600 in 15-ra023 laptop,  I fully understand that it is low-end model and it not gonna show top results, I’m using it only for work with documents and some web-browsing, but I just need to know, would it give significant or maybe a little performance boost such as space for opening and using more tabs at browser without lagging and stuttering, and solving some windows system lags?.I want to notice that I already upgraded HDD to SSD on this laptop, and it gave me significant system speed improvement, but I want to know if it will be much better with SSD+8GB ram instead of 4. It uses Pentium N3710 CPU. Thanks for attention.

Well it could not hurt. I would do an analysis of how much RAM is being used. Open task manager and look at memory usage. 

Your bottleneck is not likely RAM but that very challenged CPU. Still you are likely sometimes filling up 4 gigs. Its just not quite enough for Windows 10 and 8 gb would be better just do not expect miracles.
