I am a newbie in mining, I have a couple of shitty laptops around 8-16gb ram and an Intel graphics card. I don't pay for the electricity and don't really care if the laptop dies. I tried to search around if I can mine ETH in this laptop. but all the software wants me to set up the miner with parameters related to the AMD or Nvidea graphics card. Could anyone suggest me any miner which is easy to setup and will work for my case?
If you want to mine, you have to get your mining node synchronized with the network. To get synchronized there are certain hardware requirements: SSD being one of them. So, since you don't have SSD, you can't get synchronized with the network. And since you can't get synchronized you can't mine either.
Even if you installed SSDs it would most likely not be worth it. I have no idea whether you can mine with Intel. If no, you'd need to mine with CPU which is totally pointless (you will never get any profit). If yes, your hashrate would still be probably very low, so it would be pointless.
you can use the minergate software. It won't create a lot of profit, but in your case it's worth it I guess. Here's the link: https://minergate.com/eth-mining-pool
