I recently purchased a Y510 (59013478) from Tigerdirect for US$425.99. The apparent revision of my laptop is Y510-7. I am currently in the process of downgrading to XP SP3, which is going smoothly thanks to help from this forum.
Because of the low cost, I saw fit to upgrade the CPU to an Intel Core2 Duo T8300 (purchased from Newegg for US$244.00). I will also be adding 4GB of PC2 5400 OCZ RAM and a Cirago BTA-3210 Bluetooth micro-dongle (purchased from Newegg for US$53.99 and US$19.99, respectively).
I should receive the processor by Friday and before the weekend is over will likely have disassembled the laptop completely. I have succeeded with this endeavor with two different laptops, so I consider myself to have an adequate level of experience. I was wondering if it would be of help to anyone to have step-by-step pictures of the process or pictures of specific internal parts. I likely will not write a guide to replace the processor unless demand is unusually high, but I would be happy to provide the pictures necessary. If I can be of any help, please let me know.
