Hi everyone, I have laptop i5 4210U, 4gb ram, 1tb hdd, and nvidia 820m. I'll be working with Android Studio, Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro. I'm thinking of adding Crucial 4GB Single DDR3L 1600 MT/s (PC3L-12800) CL11 SODIMM and upgrading the hard drive to Crucial BX500 3D NAND SATA 2.5-inch SSD. or should I rather buy a new laptop? my laptop right now is the ASUS X455LD with the specs above

The laptop you have is fine for those programs, the question is how much is waiting longer for things to run is worth to you vs money spend. 8 or 16 GB of RAM and an SSD will speed up the system quite a bit, not not like getting a 6 yr old newer CPU and video card.
