Default PC-BSD Web Store Now Live!
Hey everyone we have completed the main infrastructure of the PC-BSD web store! Items that are added to the PC-BSD compatiblity wiki (http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Hardware) are regularly added to the webstore, so if you do have hardware that works great with PC-BSD then submit it! Every item that has been added has been tested by the PC-BSD community and will give you a starting point if you need to buy additional hardware for your system. There are also laptops available with PC-BSD compatible configurations. Let me know what you think!

Webstore Link: http://www.pcbsd.org/store/

-Josh

Why some sale prices are higher than list prices?

This is an amazon affiliate store as you can probably tell. The prices are pre-determined by amazon's prices. Basically they are the same whether you buy them from the PC-BSD store or through amazon all that good stuff. So unfortunately i'm sure you understand we don't control the prices =). That's also why we are adding new content frequently so there will be many different options.

I would suspect that the prices that seem "off" are for items that may be more scarce, and though the list price is reasonable the "sale" price reflects attempts to sell it for an excess profit by a third or fourth party.

This is great, Josh. I often have trouble finding FreeBSD/PC-BSD compatible hardware aimed at the consumer market. This will make my life easier the next time I want to replace/repair equipment.

You could also create an PCBSD compatible apps store by category or for simple list suggesting apps that works and are good soft in their category
