You could mine with just CPU on your laptop but I wouldn't recommend it due to the risk of killing your laptop with extended period of high temperature mining.

Yes, I don't think it is a good idea to mine with your laptop because of heat that generate by laptop and the cooling mechanism is sucks in small little casing.

But if you insist to mine, you can use your CPU to mine what you have did to XMR. Or if your GPU is good enough, you can try to use GPU as well. But you really have to take note on the temperature.

Buy mining rig or start mining with eGPU if you really want to mine 'on your laptop'.
Like others said, mining on cpu is a very bad idea for laptop durability.
Good luck.

Like others said, it's not a good idea as it's not profitable and it's not good for laptop's durability. You can also try it out for yourself: pick up some project, install a miner and check what your hashrate is. Then you'll see what everybody is talking about and at least you'll get your feet wet.

You are just making your laptop to be toasted later on or would be bust up. Mining on laptop using minergate is possible but im really concerned on the lifespan of your laptop. It wont really be worth it at all because seeing on the possible profits on mining it would really be small and not worth it for the time and the electricity that you do consume and at the same time you are risking your laptop. Mining is really possible but if you do have money just purchase on gpu, it might be expensive but not as expensive compared on asics.

I think you should not use a laptop to dig up the coin. Coin digging requires a dedicated card. Configuration of laptop is not suitable for digging coin.

you can't mine using laptop. As far as I know you can use it before, year 2010 for bitcoin mining. Because of the difficulty level we can use it. better pa GPU or a video card exclusive for mining.

I would wait till winter. You would at least get some benefit using your laptop as a seat warmer.

You cannot mine anything with a laptop without eventually rendering it useless. It doesn't even have a GPU, you won't earn anything with CPU and eventually you will damage your laptop from overheating. Laptops do not have the same cooling and performance abilities that desktops have.

I've done this in the past. It was not very effective and was overheating the laptop the entire time.
I would not suggest doing so.

so even its really possible to use a laptop to mine but in terms of profits is no longer profitable since difficulty will only kill your system
and the electricity value is also expensive but if you are just wanted to practice and wants to experience how coding will be look like
yes you can continue but don't expect for any good earnings.

Why do you have 6GB RAM when you're using a 32bit version of Windows?

Why? Any POS coin is great for laptop, because laptop is relative to independent from electricity loss. And it's possible to mine several POS coins with single laptop. And also you can watch videos while POS  Cheesy

That'd not be a wise decision.

Instead, one should build his own miner, if the electricity cost is anywhere less than ten cents.
