Hey,
  New to this.
  I tried mining with cpu until someone told me about gpu beeing better at this. So I got cgminer, configured the .bat file and added some extra flag values.
 
  Now the hashing speed is  constant around 10 Mhash/sec. Still, I think it's pretty worthless to keep the laptop on for this.

  My question is, should I give it a try on Linux before quit trying with this hardware configuration ? Is there chance to see improvement on the other operating system?
  Thank you. 

For the win!

10MH/s sounds about right. You probably won't get any better results switching to linux, tho. You said you're on a laptop...is this a 4570m?

Hi, yes is a hd4570m.

Your at where the Hardware Comparison chart says.

I have a 4670 and use Phoenix 1.75 for the miner software.  It does better than CG Miner on this low end GPU.  But neither GPU is really worth mining with.  Fun to tinker with and good for getting some experience though.
