Im the owner of a little computer retail store in Canada. I sell custom made built computer and of course computer part (AMD, Intel, Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, ATI, Nvidia... etc). I think I will accept bitcoin as currency, do you think i s a good idea ? Is there any potential customer here?

Seems like a good idea especially for your field. If I saw a brick and mortar store accepting BTC in my area, I'd pay a small premium just to support it.

Would you consider selling the miners online? There is lots of software to set up BitCoin shopping carts. What price would you sell a 1G/hash mining system for in BTC?

I live in Canada.

If your prices are competitive, of course I would buy from you.

No, I will not spend $500 in BTC for a CPU that only costs $200 in CAD. Or even $220 in BTC for that matter.

I tend to get the best deals possible for most of my computer equipment, as I imagine many of the hardcore bitcoiners out there currently do as well.

Maybe you could charge slightly less than retail cost, in knowing that BTC value will increase over time?

Those are a scam, don't bother reading that page.

Im sorry I didn't had time to come on the forum this week. With the heat in montreal I had a lot of work.

The price in bitcoins of the hardware won't be higher that the value in U.S dollars. My goal is just to make more sell.
