It's just going to do occasional calculations, and periodic P-1 on my Mersennes will require time to do GCD, and the chance of the laptop being on that long is low. Unless I'm wrong about this laptop being able to do mfacto/mfactc and unless that would be faster on this old laptop, that seems to be my option.
For low hours PCs P-1 or ECM are your best bet. ECM assignments will finish in hours , P-1 in a couple days.
