    We did donate that rig to here:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2759471&postcount=1

    We had a crunching competition and gave away a pair of rigs to the same person (one for crunching, the one in this thread to a charity of your choosing)

    If you want to contribute you can always crunch with our Team. Crunch a little or crunch a lot.... every point is important to the researchers we help :toast:

    That would be great and laptops do OK for crunching just make sure you use a good laptop cooler. Baseline settings from the first link shouldn't push your laptop too hard but we can help getting the settings just right for you ;)

    An older Core 2 Duo like that will work (I'm running quite a few). The i7 in your system specs, however, will do far, far better (particularly with the GPU crunching). Check out the link in my signature to do more :)

    There is a delay between work done and credits received. Perhaps the experts here can explain more.

    Each individual WU is run by several different computers including yours, and when the results from a sufficient amount of the computers are returned, and they all match, then your WU result is "valid." At least that is how I believe distributed computing works.

    That's correct. By the time it reports to the time it gets validated it could be a bit.

    Alright guys rig is done and has been shipped out. In the rush to get it out I did forget to snap finale pics. But I did send a message to the person getting it and asked if they would snap some pics to put in the thread.

    Thanks again for all those who have helped. :toast:

    Yes, Aquinus got them a couple weeks ago and posted pictures somewhere--I think either in the Contest Thread or the WCG/BOINC thread ;)

    If you guys are still looking for parts I have a mobo, CPU and some ram that was kindly donated to me by mjkmike that I'd be willing to pass out to someone else in need.
