Snow Leopard 10.6.7
4GB of DDR3 RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 320M

I'm using my CPU right now, only getting .14 mhash / s or 1400 khash / s...is there any way to get more out of this machine?

I would say forget it, the hardware is so slow on this for such task. I know I own almost the same setup.

if you managed to mine on the video card you could pull an amazing 6 megahashes/sek or something....which means you would only waste electricity because you need about 100 macbooks to generate the power of one 5970 which costs 600 bucks.

I have an old desktop with 4 gigs of ddr2 and an nvidia geforce 9600 GT, would it be worth it then?

nope. you would still waste more money on energy - nvidia cardes are ineffective for mining, buy ati and win.

Its not obsolete for mining! Hide in the bushes and whack the UPS driver over the head with it when he's delivering a NewEgg box to your neighbor with 6990s in it!

If I make you smile you can hook me up a teeny bit:  13hKeyHMv5YMWxvwj9M1fTntGJiogdhbeo

a 6990 is bigger than my laptop and probably uses 3x more energy

yeah he's in cahoots with all the world's governments to create an overabundance of high performance computers by making people buy all these mining rigs then they'll all ban bitcoins and we'll be left with a lot of computers we don't need so everyone will try to sell theirs but everyone else is going to try to sell them so the prices will go way down so even really poor people will have supercomputers.
