I see a lot of blabbing here but only one person actually nailed the answer to the question...
A clock speed of 1.6 although might be "good enough" for some people, is not enough for others. Good is relative to your own expectations. If you can tolerate the lower calculation speed you are going to be fine, but if you are a stickler then you will notice the difference.
My CPU came clocked at 2.7GHz, but through overclocking I achieve around 3.4GHz with no stability issues. Even though I run an AMD 6 core, having all 6 of the cores clocked at 2.7GHz is not enough for me to be satisfied, thus I overclock and add more cooling. I use an Antec tower with a big fan on the top of it and I keep the side of the case off to let the cpu fan blast heat directly away with no heat cycling back towards the CPU.
Perhaps though your question could have been better summed up by asking if your computer meets the requirements to play the game, it's unclear exactly what you're looking for.
Your question about the temperature of your CPU is not related to the frame rates directly, but there is some correlation between the two. The problem you face with FPS is that your CPU is not effectively handling what's being thrown at it, I highly recommend you invest in a desktop for added cooling and stability, laptops although can be powerful enough to effectively game on, are expensive by comparison to an equally powered desktop.
That being said, if getting a different computer is not feasible, what you could look at is overclocking your CPU, but you will need to manage your heat problem. I've seen cooling pads and although they might help, I'm not sure how much good they might do you when you overclock. I say this because the case of a laptop really restricts airflow and I can't think of a single laptop I've seen that had what I consider to be "good enough" cooling.

... how about you google some facts. theres quite alot of articles telling why we see the difference between 60 and 35.
But we cannot see more than 25-35 fps.
if you flash red and yellow after another faster than 35 fps. we are most likely to see only one color.
