Is there a way to make mining on an iMac profitable? Or should I just stick with selling services?

Not sure if this is allowed on this forum specifically, but I'd really like an answer, so...

Bump?

iMac + mining = Melted iMac. At least one forum poster's done it. Stick with services, for now.

That applies for almost any kind of laptop mining.  Out of curiosity I tried running a GPU miner on my Alienware and it got way too hot for comfort quickly so I shut it down.

If you're mining on a Mac install a fan control app so you can monitor and adjust the fan speeds if things get a little hot (which they will).

I doubt you'll find it profitable though.

I'm mining with my MacBook Pro but only as part of a pool, and only when I'm using it anyway. For 24/7 mining I useother more suitable machines.
