Can't find very much about the exact spesific model number with google, but I suspect it does have one upgradeable memory slot, a so-dimm type slot. You might get memory up to 16GB or even 24GB, depending what's the size of onboard soldered ram. If it's 8GB, then you most propably could upgrade it to 16GB with a 8GB module. Or with a 16GB module you'd get to 24GB. The latter could help a little bit more. Memory supplier and different brands would all be just fine.
Your processor is most likely soldered to the motherboard, so it can't be upgraded.
Your HDD/SSD most likely can be upgraded. If you had a 2,5" HDD, upgrading that to a SSD would help in general computer speed up. So ArchiCAD too should be a little snappier. If you alreade got a SSD, just be sure there is room enough for ArchiCAD to work properly. If not, then upgare to a bigger. All brands with normal specs are just fine (Samsungs have been my choice lately).
All in all, there is not so much to do with consumer laptops, I think only a little help will come out of upgrading in this case. I am afraid upgrading won't solve your situation, at least not for long.
Memory is self replacable for most win-laptops, please see your asus manual for this. This is the one I would try, and if it does not pay out, I'd go and look for a better computer.
SSD would be more laborous to upgrade, and it depends on the persons skills if changing this would be advisable.
ps. Your graphics card could be replaced with a little bit better one though, it might be seated to a MXM slot - I could not tell.
