i.e.

Personally I think it would be pretty neat to own one.

Has anyone ever gotten a really good deal on one before? Also, what about paper notes?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Same coin, just a lot cheaper if you can pay with bitcoins.

That's pretty cool.

Are you doing it for the novelty of it, or are you doing it out of the idea that it will be worth a lot more in the future?

I own two 1BTC coins. My reasoning: well, I'm not entirely sure. Apart from the fact it is pretty neat to own one, and pretty to look at; they may one day be worth something, and it is, kind of, a risk free investment: you get the initial 1BTC back and a coin for just under a dollar/pound or so.

Also, it's makes for a portable, but risky is lost/stolen, savings 'account'.

I'm currently looking to buy a 10BTC silver coin. You invest in BTC and silver in one go.
