You can order only BFL as far as I know, but in discussion i see some people waiting almost 1 year  Grin

So I dont think it is worth

Welcome to the forum Smiley Good luck getting an ASIC! I would spend some time reading about BFL on bitcointalk before placing an order, you'll be in for a looooong wait. Might be better waiting for the next available batch from Avalon. Smiley

Asic is too risky. I still think that buying gpus is okay, since you can actually sell them, while I can imagine that ASICs will lose their value in a year.

I feel FPGA chips are the way to go if you can get one relatively cheaply rather than spend money on an ASIC machine you might not get for a year, only reason I haven't jumped into the queue, don't know how long the wait will actually be.

 Undecided I wonder if there's any updates on that by the way...

I was seriously considering buying one as well until I read around here about the long waits Sad So I put my money into ASICMiner shares, already paying off Smiley

Yep, I invest here https://www.havelockinvestments.com where you can buy 1/100th of a share in ASICM, currently trading at around BTC0.02. I bought about 50 at 0.014 about a week ago. Havelock is good as its a super simple interface, and there are no trading fees. Only a 0.0010 (i think) withdraw fee.

Check out this thread for info on the ASIC Miner https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=99497.0
