I wouldn't mine with a laptop. They're more expensive than desktop PC with same specs, breaks quickly, and most likely wouldn't generate enough profit.

Edit:
Actually, don't mine bitcoin with laptop or PC at all.
What I said above is for altcoin. My brain automatically switched the word bitcoin in your post with altcoin. Mining bitcoin with PC/Laptop is unthinkable.

Is it dangerous? A bit yes. Your computer will use-off much faster because of high load on gpu, cpu or both.
Is it profitable? No it is absolutely not profitable to mine with ordinary laptop computers.
You will get better results on faucets... so go figure.
Besides those kind of questions where asked before, answered before many, many times.
Please learn how to use google to search through bitcointalk.

My suggestion: If you can't afford real ASCII miner machine, stay away from mining
in case you just want to experience "mining" try but be advised: http://30btc.com/information/dont-waste-time-with-mining-bitcoins-on-a-laptop.html

Better try faucets it's more profitable than mining bitcoin in a laptop/desktop.

Possible scenario:

1. Your laptop/desktop will overheat/ your graphic card will overheat
2. Some software got some keylogger on it be cautious.
3. Some software is false software. It said that you are mining but it is an air mining you are not mining and the number of sats mined is a lie.
4. Some software got some malware that can affect your pc.
5. Electrical cost is more expensive than you mined on bitcoin. Your profit can't cover the electricity bills at your home.

So i prefer you try faucet and also sig campaign in this community. But if you want to experience mining then check this site (https://www.bitcoinmining.com/bitcoin-mining-software/) *permission to post this link*

i don't recommended for mining with your laptop because your laptop is going to be so heat and this can burn the all inside of your laptop but if you have more money, better you buy hardware for mining so you can continue to mining and you don't have to risk your laptop. however, its still not profitable when you only mining with your laptop.

The question was already answered. Locking thread to prevent sigspammers from saying the same thing over and over to increase their post counts.

Developer/maintainer for cgminer and ckpool/ckproxy.
ZERO FEE Pooled mining at ckpool.org, 1% Fee Solo mining at solo.ckpool.org
