Use VSync. May limit your FPS to 30 or 60, but should stabilize the framerate.

How do I activate that is it in skyrim or skyrimprefs?

Check your video control settings for your laptop. That's the first place I would look.
Depending on which aspect controls the VSync (application controlled or native to your video system).
Can't hurt to see if those options are available in Skyrim options/preferences.

Do you have ANY mods installed that change textures? (Official High Res Texture Pack, Skyrim 2K Texture Pack, Vurt's Flora Overhaul, etc.)
I have had a similar problem. My gaming rig is very strong, only problem I have is with all of the "eye candy" (high res texture replacer) mods I've installed, my hard drive is now a weak link. I get the "jumpy FPS" from time to time and I've pretty well narrowed it down to "lag" from my 7200RPM HDD (larger texture files taking more time to load than the vanilla ones). Getting a SSD or creating a RAMDISK would most likely solve this problem. A RAMDISK is out of the question for you seeing as how you only have 4GB available, even if you did upgrade to 8GB, I wouldn't recommend it. If you can afford to get an SSD (solid state drive, much much faster than hard disk) I would say that is your best bet.
**Also remember that next gen consoles are approaching and any modification that you do to your PC will not only help with Skyrim but also possibly allow you to run the new titles that will possibly have some fairly outrageous system requirements.
