gentoo-sources is fine for laptops. What do you have in your laptop that
makes you think some other patches will perform better?

Someone else's make.conf is not going to help you much, it's way to
customized for each machine. You could start by copying the one you
already have on your desktop and working from there. It's what I do,
the only things I change are the arch and the cpu-specific USE flags
(things like mmx, sse)
