Nope. It's a closed system (just like Dells and other PC manufacturers), not to mention the fact that Apple has never condoned overclocking.

Plus, even if you COULD overclock the CPU, why would you do it with a laptop? Either the laptop would fry, or it would burn your lap from running so hot

It would smell so tasty though! Yea, horrible idea for laptops.
