Wrong. I hate all the fear mongering that gets thrown around when it comes to over-clocking laptops. The truth is, if the laptop is not having problems now when it comes to efficiently cooling the CPU and GPU or IGP, it won't have problems if you over-clock with no voltage increase. It's only components that are running hot which shouldn't be over-clocked.
I over-clocked the C2D P7450 on my laptop from the stock 2.13GHz to 2.6GHz and the only change has been that the temp. has gone from 65C under full load to 67C, which is still well under the max. temp. of 90C.
As for the GPU, I'm being more careful with that because it is quite hot and powerful for a laptop GPU. It already gets stock to 95C on Furmark and pushing it to an overall 15% over-clock makes that 98C. Still, it's under the max. specified 120C, so I'm not too worried.
If anything, over-clocking the GPU is more dangerous than over-clocking the CPU because it rises temps. more. Only thing you really need to worry about is if the laptop's chassis can take it.
Post your current full-load temps. for the CPU. Since from what I can see your laptop has an IGP, don't bother: it's too slow to make a difference.
Don't listen to the fear mongers.
