I have Lenovo Ideapad 300 15ISK 80Q7 with
Core i7 - 6500U
4Gb DDR3L
AMD R5 M330.
I have Windows 10 Pro Fall Creators update 64 bit installed. The laptop lags often. It even becomes laggy sometimes when I use it with OneNote, a pdf opened in Adobe DC, 5 to 7 tabs on Firefox and a song opened in VLC. I've tried fresh reinstalling Windows.
The question is should I upgrade it with more ram and a SSD or just buy a new laptop. I can't decide which option will be more efficient.
Help me.

agreed, you just need to get more ram and add a small SSD drive to the latop. if you still need a lot of space you can consider taking the optical drive out of it and use a HDD caddy to keep your old HDD for storage

of course the upgrade will be cheaper - all you need is 8GB stick and an SSD of a size you need.
getting new laptop will be much more expensive.
with those upgrades it should handle all you tasks easily.
