I need some laptop advice

| I can only buy one RAM upgrade or a SSD my current one has 256gb of ssd and a 8gb ddr4 ram, which one should i buy

| Do you really need either? If you find yourself running out of disk then get the SSD upgrade.

Imo 8GB of RAM is enough unless you're a hardcore gamer or use photoshop/CAD stuff.

| It's not a need but a possibility, since i can get both at relatively low prices, and I've read that using both ram slots improves performance exponentially instead of using only one or does that applies only to pc's?

Not only to PCs, but I never checked what happens if you have 2 ramsticks from different manufacturers. Might throttle a bit.

256GB of ssd sounds like enough for workspace. For archiving purposes it's usually better to have an external HDD. Or the normie way of cloud.

| In my experience while using two ram's of different manufacturers, i haven't really seen any throttle, but not a huge improvement in performance either, and I'll be using that laptop both for work and gaming

| I would recommend a ram upgrade + an external hdd.

| I don't really like carrying around a hdd so I'll probably go with the ram upgrade tbh

| I would suggest that if the space upgrade is not a current necessity, then go for ram.
You can always upgrade space later on if/when you need it, but ram will show a more immediate result.
