i have no idea why people are saying what theyre saying. it is as if they have absolutely no experience with such things and basing their response off of someone else.
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.
based on what i read here, these members have no idea what they are talking about.
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.
