Yes, but with caveats. I would not run BOINC on any laptop using all cores as a laptop will be stressing its cooling system. I don't have a laptop currently but when I get another one I will limit it to 1/4 of the processors which for the one I am thinking of getting will be half of the real cores.

This will not necessarily put less load on the cooling system.
Unlike (very) old CPUs modern ones can be limited by power usage and/or CPU temperature.
The same power usage/temperature can be reached with few cores running at a high frequency or more/all cores running at a lower frequency.

The cooling system must be able to deal with max limits.
If not this would be a design issue.

Example:
Recent AMDs typically throttle when 95 °C is reached.
This limit can be set to 85 °C or even 75 °C via the BIOS.

Possibly not but especially as I run testing work quite a bit, I would rather have fewer cores running flat out than running all cores but I guess that is more about my preferences than the question.
