Speed up a laptop with an additional device


I'm just curious what do you think about a suplimentary device that would increase a laptop's speed.
I using my laptop both at university and at home. At home I would need more horse power for my laptop although not that much like I would need a desktop. Is there any supplimentary device that could turn my laptop into a more powerful machine? For example a desktop computer can be speed up if it will be joined with other computer via very fast network. This is how clusters a build. Would it be possible to make the same with a laptop.

Is there such a device? If there is not would you like to have need one?

No, is the basic answer.

More RAM might help if it doesn't already have plenty.

One of those cooling desk mounts might make a difference if it is slow due to throttling its CPU and/or GPU under high load in order to avoid overheating.

Replacing the disk drive with something faster might make a difference if that is your main bottle-neck.

You could try overclocking the CPU if such a thing is possible with your laptop model, but I'd strongly recommend against that even if it is possible.

Without more detail (make/model/spec of laptop, what is running slower than you'd like, ...) it is not possible to give more a specific answer.
