Please, someone try to install Windows 11 on Intel Core i7-6500U CPU @ 2,50GHz, because I could see the comment from Microsoft that may will not works well.

I´m not sure if I need to upgrade my laptop because of that.

The community can help me?

Technically, your processor is not supported because it doesn't have a thread isolation security feature that is desired/required. You do have ME support for TPM 2.0 in the ME however, I believe.
Windows 11 can still be installed on virtually any machine (with TPM support), but it takes hacking and you will definitely be compromising security - and Microsoft will let you know about it in nag screens, etc. and etc. They may pull the plug and block this hacking any day now.
You have a 6th gen processor. The current gen is 14. 8 gens old? Yes, the better answer is time for an upgrade.
Hope this helps,
