Greetings,

I've just signed up here, and I'm new to cryptocurrency in general. I was wondering if I have chosen the right currency to mine with my laptop. My GPU is NVIDIA GeForce 635M and I'm gonna use it to mine. I really don't have any budget to get any kind of mining hardware. Please let me know if I should even bother on my Laptop or not.

I'll wait for your answers before installing the main client and starting to mine.

Best Regards,
Reav3R

Mining on a laptop is a very bad idea. They are not designed to endure the workload and temperatures that mining requires, even with X11. You can burn something or reduce its life. Your laptop is worth more than what you are going to get, I would not do it.

At current difficulty, you should have a decent amount of hashing power to get a profit. I don't think a CPU could work

difficulty today reached an insanely high level (8.000 and above). I can't get about anything with a rig of two 280x cards...
