Although you can use GUIMiner or bitcoin-miner.exe to mine, you will only get around 2-3Mhash/s so it would take years to generate a block.
If you just want to mine for fun, it is possible but your laptop may overheat and the CPU may overload.

Can you mine? Absolutely, but, mining on laptops isn't generally a good idea, because of the stresses associated with bitcoin generation. You can mine whenever you like, but it's only really worth mining if you have a decent GPU.

My recommendation to you is to try out mining, use some different miners, get a good understanding of how things work. I caution you though, do not mine for extended periods of time on a laptop. You should also consider joining a mining pool, as it's unlikely you'll generate any bitcoins on your own.

To live is the rarest thing in the world, most people simply exist.

According to bitcoin wiki, you get a whooping 1.19 Mhash/s from Atom N270
