Over the past three years, Prime Day deals have helped a lot of people get new Windows laptops as work-from-home, remote, and other forms of hybrid work upended the normal way we approached technology, and many of those laptops are still excellent devices. 

Still, even two-year-old devices can start to show a little bit of wear and tear, or what might have been a decent specc'ed device in early 2020 might be a little bit underpowered for your needs.

Fortunately, you can get kits like this Crucial 32GB DDR4 SODIMM RAM kit for just $48.39 at Amazon (the lowest price it's ever been!), or this Adata 1TB PCIe 4.0 NVME SSD for just $39.89 at Amazon, which is also the lowest price we've seen online for it.

Of course, before you do anything, always check your manufacturer's website for your specific model to see if it can be upgraded and what kind of part is compatible with the device you have. Apple MacBooks from the past five years cannot be upgraded at all, for example, and even with Windows laptops that allow for upgrading, opening up your laptop to upgrade it will almost certainly void your warranty, so doing your homework beforehand is essential.

There are also plenty of demos online where professionals can walk you through the process for how to upgrade a laptop device safely, and in most cases, the hardest part is opening the device to install the components. Once that's done, it should be as simple as slotting in the part and closing the laptop back up.
