Hi everyone, I'm new in this mining thing, i only mined a year and half ago and with my CPU XD so i don't anything.
My question is:
I want to buy a Jalapeno (I don't know how much time i will have to wait to get one after the pay), its 4.5 GH but with the new 60 GH the difficulty will rise a lot right?
If I buy a Jalapeno I will profit?

I guess there are about 20,000 - 30,000 units in backorder.
When you order now, your Jalapeno will be delivered somewhere after 6 months.

25,000 units X 60.000 Gh/s is about 1,500,000 Mhash/s of hashingpower coming in about 6 months.

That's 1,500 Thash/s, compared to the 50 Thash/s now.

Difficulty will skyrocket to 145,000,000 in about 6 months.

So you can still mine 0,015 BTC in 24 hours @ 4,500 Mhash/s when you receive your Jalapeno.

But I could be wrong...

No, there are multiple reasons why:

1) It's BFL, search the forums. They have been delaying their schedule continuously and many even question if there is a real product.

2) Increasing network difficulty, check out this link: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining#The_Difficulty_Metric

3) Place in Pre-Order List: There are tons of folks who have orders 6-10 months ago for ASIC hardware, be prepared to wait months.

If you're interested in the concept and don't mind waiting awhile, go ahead. With how the mining landscape is changing, expect that you will not break even if you buy hardware now (unless you're going large scale).

Hope this helps

There will always be new opportunities to start mining.
New devices will come, old will get obsolete.

Next time, pre-order in time and expect to wait 6-12 months for something to arrive.
