my specs are in my signature I'm eventually going to upgrade my cpu, but I would like to know if I can overclock mine in the meantime. Considering the Intel T9600 for my upgrade.

Many laptops have the overclocking features disabled in the BIOS, but even if not, Rainbow is right overclocking a laptop is not a wise idea due to cooling (or lack thereof) in a laptop, as well as they simply werent designed to overclock, and upgrading the CPU is going to be quite the task.

Replacing a mobile CPU is a pain and sometimes it's impossible. It's not uncommon for the CPU to be soldered to the motherboard itself. Even if you did replace it, it's entirely possible that the notebook's motherboard might not recognize it, making it unusable.
