Unused memory won't increase performance. 

Upgrade when needed, this is kind of a waste of money and you can spend that somewhere else.

Why would you upgrade the RAM just because "you can"? That's just stupid.

Your system is using DDR4 SODIMM 2666Mhz.

Whether that is 1x8GB or 2x4GB I am unsure of. Whether you can upgrade at all, I don't know either without the laptop model number.

There is really only a reason to upgrade if you need more memory.

Are you video editing, 3D modeling, using VM's or anything else that uses a lot of memory?

16 gigs is more than enough for the most part then.

Have you checked the manual?

They recommend, at least from my experience, compatible RAM modules
