one is a CPU and one is a bridge ASIC. one is in a socket (turn the screw and it will free up and you can pull it out) and one is soldered. remove the socketed one (likely green fibre no metal) and leave the soldered on. That's a laptop class board.

Thank you lostinlodos.

Since the boards are going to a refiner, do i just leave both on the board?

Also what class are laptop boards, mid or high?

leave them on.
and for most companies it would be midgrade.

do pop the wire out and remove the tape, bottom left. make sure there's no button cell battery under that.

Absolutely! Both are on Chris’s list (green fibre no metal, and flat pack with tab).
All ICs (integrated circuits) have PM.
