I have a acer a515-51g i5 8th 8250u 8gb ddr4 ram 1th hdd, windows 10.

I'm thinking about making laptop run faster, I don't play games, but I use chrome browsers a lot like 15+ tabs little photoshop.
Currently laptop is little laggy at times, tried a lot of optimization. Boot time is very large.
So
Should I get a 240ssd or upgrade my ram ?

Are you monitoring RAM utilization? Load up what you typically do in Chrome (15+ tabs) and check utilization in Task Manager. If you're maxing out the 8GB, then start by upgrading the memory. If not, then the SSD would be the way to go.

Generally speaking, I'd opt for an SSD before upgrading beyond 8GB of memory.... but it depends on your specific situation.
