0.5 bitcoin /week? You would need about 3000 GHash/s right now. That translates to about 10 ASICMINER USB Miners. So about 2000 dollars. Expect the required Hashrate to raise significantly within the next weeks.

He'll kill his laptop before he finds a single coin. These things are not made to run 100% 24/7.

The best thing you can do is mine powercoin. It has very low difficulty with your laptop you can get up to 3000 powercoin per day.
