Help Naming my Shop

I need to find a strong name for our online computer business. Why ask the fellow linux community for help with such a thing, why not?

The selection is limited because of the saturation in .com and .net sites, but I've been kicking these around, and I'm more than open to suggestions...

Names that I'm considering now

Kryoblue Systems
BlueStreakPC / systems

Any input on these or other names would be greatly appreciated!!

Apparently computers

Something to consider:

Do you think people will arrive at your site simply by typing it into the url bar? Have you heard of They appear to be doing quite well, and I doubt more than a handful of people arrived at their site by simply typing "" the first time they went there (assuming they hadn't heard of it of course). So I don't think focusing on a great .com name should be a big deal. You could even go with a .biz or whatever's cheap. Just get good advertising, get a good strong reputation, and you could call it and people would probably have no problem buying a computer from you!
