The first suggestion would be to not do it.

The second suggestion would be to have very low expectations.

It's all minuses,

1. It is a laptop.

2. They are designed for specific cooling, and overclocking generates more heat that the cooler can't get rid of.

3. There will be zero options in the bios to overclock with.

You make this sound like digging a hole for myself & waiting for it to collapse on top of me, but upon investigation i find your advice to be absolutely sound. When I think about it rationally, it ain't broken, so why try to fix it.
Thanks Ignatzatsonic & Stormy13.
