Is it worth updating this laptop with this specs?

Hey, I am using dell vostro 15-3568 laptop, right now the specs are i5 7200U (2 cores), 8 gb ram, 2gb radeon R5 M420, 256 ssd+1tb hdd and 41.5mWh (but presently the battery capacity as come down to 16.7mWh)..
I am using this laptop since last 4 years and I use this for regular use, I don't game that often with this, may just once in a while, most of the usage is for browsing, watching movies and for work. I was thinking to upgrade to 16gb ram, where I will have to get 2 8gb ram sticks cuz the present ram are 4+4, and battery though the capacity is less, I have limited the charge til 80% and leave the wall power on..When I am getting the new battery should I get the same 41.5mWh or can get more mWh? Also is 16gb ram worth for 2 core cpu??

8 GB is enough for office work and browsing (unless you open like 100 tabs).
Some AAA games prefer 16 GB RAM, but you won't play them anyway with the Radeon R5 M420.
