Hello,

I just joined this website and I'd like to contribute some power to it, but not too much because I have an older laptop.

My laptop is an alienware m14x r1.

So what are the least demanding projects for this old laptop?

The shortest I'm getting out of my GPU is 1 hour per project, is this as low as I can go?

I am not worried about the laptop overheating, as I have lowered the cpu usage on my boinc to a max of 25%.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you so much.

There are two apps you may choose from, the Micro Units, which run only for low end computers, and the Sieve Units, which take 10 hours on my computer (I can't d Micro Units).

The CPU tasks don't usually cause too much over heating and my GPU also does about 1 hour per task (but I disabled GPU crunching due to overheating issues).
