The Computer Industry Giant has formally posted an announcement on their webpage informing that they would be accepting Bitcoin has payment option. This has led to believe that the Company is on the watch for these new technologies and wants to keep up with innovation. Dell has also announced that they would be working through a partnership with Coinbase The Company firmly believes that this integration is intended to introduce a new and more flexible payment option for customers.
Bitcoin allows payments to be made easily from anywhere in the world, while offering a substantial lower fee costs than any other option. Dell offers a simple service where you can pay easily with your Bitcoins, as if it were with a credit card:

Although, the Company is firmly stating its full acceptance of Bitcoin, we can see that Dell’s still has some “forks” to be resolved before it can surely say that they are going full on Bitcoin.
This announcement has been all over the social networks, and is already being discussed on the dedicated forums, so we can surely say that this could be affecting the Bitcoin price thicker!
