You don't want to disable it. Hyperthreading gives you better performance, and helps your computer run cooler and with less power.
 
Most laptop BIOS are very limited as it is. Hyperthreading is almost always hidden from the setup utility. When available, sometimes a modded BIOS will open up the feature, but I don't promote implementing one of those unless you're willing to take the risk and you know what you are doing.
