    processor is Intel mobile PIII-700

    Laptop is an IBM Thinkpad T20... but dont ask what model! When will Sony, IBM, Toshiba et all work out that you only need a few base models, with value-add extras, not call an entire range the same model with different sub-divisions!

    What are you interested in overclocking? If it's the processor, you can find lots of information online. If it's the video card, download powerstrip and overclock bit by bit using the artifact detection utility.

    What happens if you overclock a laptop? And how can you keep it cool?

    I have one of the supersmall fujitsus, so mine gets pretty hot already and starts f*cking stuff up.

    Got any slick ideas for cooling?

    The only thing you can try if you feel lucky is buy some cooling tape from a comp store and put it above the GPU or the CPU. Without any extra cooling, I added 20 mhz to my Radeon's core speed and 40 (ddr)mhz to my memory speed.
