does a intel i3 runs salad? its a laptop i3
Which specific model i3 do you have?
530m i think its a first gen one so i think it wont work
As far as I know there is no i3 530M. Is it an i3 530? That should be able to mine, though excruciatingly slow- and you need at least 2.3GB of available RAM to start mining.
If it’s an i3 350M, you might still mine, maybe. Chances are it may work unreliably or just not at all (same thing applies as above in terms of earnings and RAM requirements).
