Laptops dont like to be overclocked because of how limited the internal space is and how quickly heat can be removed from the case,

this.
most modern laptops are already too much heat for their cooling solutions

In theory you can overclock it. However, heat/cooling is the main thing holding back overclockers.

If you keep an eye on the temps (below 60) and stay within the maximum allowed volts then, why not see what you can do?

Often, laptops have more limited BIOSs; you won't have the features that a motherboard, more suited to OC'ing might have.

Damn, you guys are quick...

What they said


Overclocking causes excess heat which most laptops cant handle..

I know mine runs around 50c on the cores at stock and can get up around 65c when really doing alot..

General rule of thumb with laptops is to let them be... Too small of a space to try and keep cool.....

So in conclusion overclocking your laptop is viable and it generates no excess heat.
