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.

Called up BFL yesterday to ask about the mini-rig. They said it will be priced at $15,400. It will be a somewhat modular design like the rig box, but they wont sell a 'bare bones model'. It will be fairly loaded as sold at the 25gh setup.

I was hoping for a cheaper, less loaded version with the ability to build it up as funds are available.

This is consistent with what I was told as well via e-mail a week ago -- FWIW

The Mini Rig is now on BFL's product page; the Rig Box is gone.

So what are the square blocks with the circle cut out over each board?  Is that going to be an additional fan over each?

The Mini Rig is now on BFL's product page; the Rig Box is gone.

The air flow kind of scares me with this setup. Could definitely be optimized, especially if those are fans over each board.

I see what looks like 24 singles. By my calculations that is just shy of 20GH/s. I wonder if they're planning on optimizing the Single firmware or designing new modules that gets a little over 1GH/s.

Only 18 modules, because the power supply takes up some space.
Total hash performance 25 GH/s.

So if the Mini-Rig consists of 24 boards like in this drawing, each one has about 1GH/s and about 20MH/W, just like at some point proposed for the Singles.

Why don't the Singles?

Obviously a new board. When will we see Singles with it?

Edit: Inspector2211 asked the question, sorry for the redundancy

It doesn't. It consists of 18 modules, because the power supply takes up some space. Total hash rate is 25 GH/s.

Your grammar doesn't make sense.

Re spam, what about all the threads discussing various aspects of Icarus?
Searching the boards, there are several of those too in addition to the main thread.

Granted, I too find it a bit annoying that I now have to read and watch several BFL threads but that hardly qualifies them as spam.

 Due to the cost, I would join 3-5 people in a group purchase and share the costs and share the mining profit.

I think the Rig Box never existed and the same for the Mini.
Only pictures. 

They don't give any indication about the delivery terms for the Mini.
Probably they have issues cooling it, for that they are working on water blocks.
I guess it will be available next year with water blocks at an higher price and I will happy to order two.

Does anyone have ordered a Rig or Mini Box?
Do you get any indication about the delivery date?

Anyway I believe they are good guys and are doing a great job with limited financial resources.

So I don't blame them for delaying the delivery to use that money for R&D.

I have ordered 4 mini rig boxes. They should be here sometime in May.

If you want more information, call Butterfly Labs. Their phone number is on their website.
