You could do it with most notebook. However, you could do it fairly easy with Z71v.
On the Z71V there is a dipswitch next to the CPU. All you have to do is flip the switch up or down for 400FSB or 533FSB.
With other notebook you have to pull out some copper wire and manually do a pin modding by connecting certain pins together using copper wire. This is a little more difficult and tricky to do.
Z71V is the only laptop I know of that uses the dipswitch. Which making it the overclocking laptop dream machine!
