This question already has an answer here:
I was strongly considering buying one of the 25 GHash/s miners and hooking it up to my laptop or desktop when not using them, as in, leave the miner running overnight or while I'm at work.
The mining profitability calculators confuse me. If I join a pool and mine the way described above, would it be profitable?
How long would it take to earn that c. $800 back?
