So I have a very very very cheap crypto mining budget and was looking at old chromebooks because they can still mine crypto and I’m just looking to make $10-$20 a month

Your parents wont appreciate the bump in electric bills, and good luck using weaksauce celerons with how hardcore the difficulties are on coins that are worth mining (and dont hit me with moneros, theyre just going thru a downward spiral)

Or I can save and buy 4 GT 710’s or 2 GT 1030 for a very cheap crypto Ming budget

Thatll be an even worse waste of money, especially because 1030 really dont have the hashing power to make profit.

So I have a very very very cheap crypto mining budget and was looking at old chromebooks because they can still mine crypto and I’m just looking to make $10-$20 a month. Or I can save and buy 4 GT 710’s or 2 GT 1030 for a very cheap crypto Ming budget, but am mainly looking at mining with old used laptops. Any suggestions since GPU’s are to expensive?

This seems like a waste of money to me. Those cards will be too slow to make any reasonble profit, and your just wasting your time setting them up.

wasting more electricity than what you'll earn probably

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
