Paying in btc is awesome if you know a little math. Sure the bitcoin is the better option when we talk about online purchases, because it still saves your privacy and some bank transaction fees.
Check your math again... If paying in bitcoin through a bitcoin processor like Bitpay or Coinbase (which is the only option for most stores that "accept bitcoin"), there are two bank transfers: when you send money to buy bitcoin, and when the processor sends money to the merchant.

Bitcoin may be more economical than bank transfers for international payments.  Otherwise it is just a convenient option for people who have old cheap bitcoins and have decided to cash on the profit.  It may (or may not) save some money, compared to selling the bitcoins on an exchange and sending the money to the merchant.

In that case paying in btc for small purchases is completely meaningless.

Nicely done Smiley Wouldn't it be better if you buy like 10 printers and offer a packed solution? You can go to a crowdfunding website if you don't think that any donations done so far will cover all the costs. Just an idea.

Definitely a good option, especially considering the electricity bills that come at  the end of each month. Not including the miner itself, which also costs a good amount of money. Plus if you are not really sure whether to invest in Bitcoin or something else, this a nice way to experience the cryptocurrency concept.
