Ah, but there's a difference.  If you're laptop is sitting there idle, it'll probably go into standby or even sleep mode and only use a few watts.  You mine with it and you're probably using 60-100 watts.  So you might actually make a few bucks, but there's a good chance you'll kill your laptop a lot faster than if it had just been idling/sleeping.

Well, after quick calculation it seems that mining provides ~10USD per month, wich nearly exactly covers electricity cost. Better this, than just power consumption while it runs idle. And I dont really think it will kill my hardware since chip itself [cpu+gpu] is only 18W. I can hear the fan, but its never at full speed, nor do I feel any excesive heat from any laptop part.

Ah, that's good, just be ready, at block 210,000 (we're at 207,781 now and will probably hit 210K in about 2 weeks), the block reward drops in half.  So you'll be making half as much as you are now.  If the BTC/$ price doesn't go up, you might be losing $5/month Smiley

I wonder how difficulty will change - with reward drop some miners should drop as well. So there is a slight chance that I will mine with my laptop little longer - until ASICs will come out.

half from what he is earning now. also.. what do you think, use a netbook to run 24/7 and mine with it? the power consumption is 10-15W without screen and depending on brand.

I personally wouldn't mind with anything other than relatively power efficient GPU's right now (at least 2-3 MH/watt).  That being said, I wouldn't buy _anything_ to mine at the moment until we see if there's any shakeup because of ASIC's in the next 2 months.  Claims of 500-1000 MH/watt ASIC's would make even the best GPU useless for mining.

9800 GTX doing 35.5 Mhash/s right now.

I wish I had the money or hardware to do more right now but I just don't. I have been thinking about getting my hands on some of my friends old cards that they no longer use and just running those. I guess I'm really only doing this for fun right now though. I'm not currently looking to "make money" even though I am getting some coins through this.

I have a 6850, I think Im getting around 160mh/s, it seems rather low for a decent card, but Im only running GUIminer with stock GPU speed/voltage.

I think its worth it, not really sure my kw/h price ($.16 maybe?), but Im trying to learn a bit more about mining while I wait for my BFL machine to arrive.

I'm seeing these M/Hash & G/Hash figures but not really understanding how many Bitcoins/hr they translate to. That's more of a significant metric if you ask me.

How do you go about determining that?

870 Mh/s  with #3 5830s running in the closet.

around 1210 Mh/s when I let my main PC with #1 6950 mine at the same time. 

Making about 0.21 BTC/day.

I think snare rolls should be used as a currency.
