Bitcoin is the true one world currency. Conspiracy theorists are already convinced that it was created by NWO illuminati ninja agents. That means it has a 100% chance of success, since the illuminati literally control everything. My logic is undeniable.

No one with even an ounce of techinical knowledge buy dells, which is why I personally think it is strange that they are attempting to cater to such an audience. Maybe they think bitcoin will truly catch on.

Also, hackers buy Lenovo. I seen't it.

Honestly, Dells aren't THAT bad.  Of all the pre-built computer manufacturers, Dell is probably the best.  And from personal experience, I've seen Dell PCs last over 10 years and remain usable.  Not very well, mind you, but usable.

But they are mostly for offices and people who just wanna check e-mail and facebook.

Dell makes all of its boatloads of cash because they are the best computer supplier to large businesses and the government. Nearly every computer and monitor in my office is Dell. They really know how to mass manufacture their stuff and distribute it, I'll give them that.

But as a personal computer I'd never buy one.

They're not that bad. Over priced - yes. Pre-installed bloatware - yes. Too vanilla for gaming fanboys - yes. Other than that, pretty OK.

Just made a bitcoin purchase on Newegg and it was surprisingly simple. I'm impressed at how well they've implemented the overall payment process, it even directly integrates with the wallet software stored on my computer. One button click and my wallet asked me to verify the payment information and enter my password. A lot has changed in just a year, I can't wait to see what 2015 will bring.

Considering I got $150 off my order for using Bitcoin, it sort of was a pretty good deal.

Their advert says "10% or $100".

So you got 10% off. Did your currency drop more than 10%?

The deal over Labor day was $75 off for purchases over $300 and $150 off for purchases over $500.
