    1. Pay an AASP to do it.
    2. Become a Self Service for tech Apple Laptops yourself.

    lol, in simpler terms, if you attempt to upgrade those parts yourself you will void your applecare.

    You need to have an Apple Certified Technician do the work.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but last time I asked a genius he said even though he was certified he could not perform any upgrades to his own macbook and needed someone else to do it, so I don't know if getting certified means you can fix your own laptop :)
