Earlier this week popular electronics e-retailer Newegg became one of the latest sites tech sites to join the fray.
Still we haven't seen many 'major' tech manufactures willing to take the leap, until now!

In addition to accepting Bitcoins, Dell has said they'll be running a special Alienware promotion wherein customers can save 10 percent off a new Alienware system purchase (up to $150 limit) when checking out with bitcoin.
