I wouldn't overclock a laptop. They don't have the required cooling to sustain higher clockspeeds without damage. Most of them run hot already, and most of them are pushed as far as they can go right from the factory. OCing a laptop is just asking for trouble.

Remember: Never OC what you can't afford to replace.
