you can overclock a laptop and it is perfectly fine to do so. the only problems is that most venders restrict you from the bios overclocking and that the cooling usually restricts you from pushing the system as far as it could.

typically, if you have a dedicated gpu, you can overclock that with software like you do on a pc. however, watch your temps and research what other people got on their overclock.

asus allows for bios overclocking. im not sure if targas does, but maybe. alienware does on some models. asus uses a preset overclock setting. you load the bios and select a 5, 10, or some other interval of 5% overclock. again, watch you temps and do long stress tests.

I have an HP dv6. I don't know anything about it really but if you have any input I'd be happy to hear about it.

Also I have the following graphics card or whatever you call it in my laptop. Its switchable.

NameRadeon (TM) HD 6490M

Really, I'd like to just set the turboboost multiplier to go up to 3.5 GHZ so heat would self limit the processor like it does currently. Currently it turboboosts up to 2.8 so it would be fairly modest.

No need to be rude! people are offering their opinions to try to help.
I think the point other people were making was why try to OC a laptop and potentially cause damage , any very small performance boost would be hardly noticeable in real world usage and as laptops run hot and have very limited cooling options it really doesnt make sense to OC something which is just not designed to do it.

Definitely not the best idea to overlclock a laptop, especially a new one.

Uhh what? They said the same thing you basically said yourself:

-Locked BIOS
-Stock cooling limits OC anyway

Eh, its alright even if I could do it I wouldn't after hearing all of your opinions.

I just came from a turion 64 x2 processor with integrated graphics so needless to say this laptop already feels super fast. I'd rather not mess with it if its dangerous.

Plus it overclocks itself to 2.8Ghz when needed, can't argue with that.
