    Is it a easy swap out ? What exactly is involved?

    Once the hardware portion is done, the biggest part is done.

    What exactly do you want to know? If your not comfortable to tear a part your laptop, you should not attempt this...
    But if you are, have patience and you may need some new parts like heatsink past, special tape, good tools, maybe a new keyboard if you don't destroy your pulling the old one out.

    You will need to modify one of the driver file once all is done, your laptop may not recognize your card, but that is fixable.
