It is the CPU.

I have 8GB of RAM (CL9, the fastest available) and a decent SSD.

It's not 'slow' as such, but compared to my desktop i7 it is noticeably more sluggish. The upgrade to an A10-4600M would still fall far short of an i7, but the extra two cores would help. (The 'dual core' I have is really just ONE core, with two modules. The 'quad' is a dual core with four modules. So on paper it could be a substantial improvement in snappiness. That's if it still works after I put it back together, which is probably doubtful )

WTF does he need a laptop for anyway, oh to google facts about the Nazis while he watches a supposedly historically inaccurate TV program?

If that new processor is 30 and you’re 50/50 about getting a new laptop anyway you may as well go for it and even if you kill it you could return the processor and get a new laptop.

Stuff like this is like car mechanics. You just need to do it as a series of small jobs rather than 1 big one. So just do one thing like remove outer screws and remove the back. Then keep all those things together, take a pic and move to the next step and do the same. Then when you put it back together you just run through everything in reverse order and have a pic of how it looked at each step. You can also do what cream egg says and map out all the screws. I find it easier to group screws and parts by steps, maybe having the screws roughly laid out how they go in relation to their placing.
