Thanks boconniff40.

I read a lot about BTC, most of the posts,  but only now I decided to mine and ordered a Single BFL just to start.

I would like to understand if I need a dedicated PC with the SINGLE and/or the Rig Box like with GPU's?
if not can I use the PC for web browsing during mining?
if I need a dedicated PC, a laptop could be OK being the units connected via USB?

Any help would be appreciated.

it has to be "dedicated" as in you need to have it on all the time you want it mining since the boxes are not self sufficient, but you can do whatever you want on it while mining, unlike with a gpu you can play games without the hashing speed decreasing. Or you can do the same thing using a dd-wrt e-3000 router https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=76685.0 this is quite nice and I might be doing this for when I get my singles.
