PC upgrade question

Folks,

I'm running LR6 stand-alone on laptop (w/Viewsonic monitor) and would like some input as to whether I'll see 'significant' performance improvement by moving to a tower PC setup.

Current setup:

- Lenovo T420, Win 7 Pro, dual core I-7 2.7 GHz / 16 Mb RAM.  LR software & catalog stored on 500Gb HDD, image files reside on external HDD w/USB-2 connection to laptop.

Possible new setup:

- Mini-tower (HP or Dell?)

Win 10 Pro, Core I-5 7500 3.4 GHz / 16 Mb RAM.  LR software & catalog stored on internal SSD, image files on 2nd 3.5" internal HDD.

I realize one cannot quantify the change in performance....but can you give me a feel as to whether or not the change will be 'significant'?

Add'l suggestions definitely welcome!

Thanks/Bill
