Is it possible to overclock this? I've heard of people OC'ing their laptop, and I'd love to do it, but Just kinda wondering since I've never done it on this machine...

What are some of the good utilities for trying to OC?

Also... I'm running Ubuntu Lucid (10.10/04), so It can't be specific to Windows. Or even are there some utilities built in that I can use?

There's absolutely no way to overclock an Intel Core i laptop. If you're daring, you could try a hard-mod of your laptop. But you'd still be stuck to BCLK overclocking, and you'd void your warranty, probably have a newly found $700 paperweight, etc.

If you have discrete graphics, you could either voltmod and OC, or just OC at stock voltage, easy enough.

Now if you did want to overclock, get an AMD Llano laptop, some people have those OC'd to ~2.5ghz (quad-core), and 3ghz turbo.

Ouch... well that sucks that I can't OC Core i laptops.... And I can't afford to hard mod it. So i'll stick without that.

And unfortunately, I have integrated graphics. frown.gif It was a $900 paper weight when I originally bought it two years ago... (paper weight just because it was so expensive. It's been reliable since I bought it though. smile.gif )


I'll look into buying a new laptop in the future. Thanks.... That helps clear up some questions.
