@intelligentspaz3 That depends on your laptop but I wouldn't have much hope. You can check with ethminer -G -M (afair) how much MH/s you get on your GPU
Mining with CPU only will not give you much (anything)

You'll need at least 1000000 (1MH/s) to get anything in resonable time

1 million MH/s wow
It will take you an average of 0.22 day to find 1 Block

One decent GPU can give you 20-25 MH/s
not 1 milion mh/s
1 mh/s

not really, with 25 MH/s using http://etherscan.io/ether-mining-calculator you can calculate that your earnings are ~$177
and yu need to pay your lectricity bill

you need to install ethminer you can find the isntructions in the documentation, it will check your setup and tell you your hashrate.

are the fees on testnet morden realistic? Since it seems that the fees are always the same. Which is odd, because if ethereum increases in price these fees will skyrocket
