    I don't remember seeing any BGA part AMD CPU, so I'd say it's a socket and is removable (like the K53TA)

    Try confirming again though, because I might be wrong.

    The A8-4500M/A10-4600M use a FS1r2 scoket. You should be able to swap APUs without any other implications.

    Most Asus laptops do not have a "whitelist" and will accept a wide range of wireless cards (other than those shipped from the factory) provided you have the corresponding drivers/applications.
