Bitforce, the hardware Bitcoin miner running at 50 GH/s will give you a significant edge over software mining on your computer. 

Bitforce attaches to the computer via USB. Multiple Bitforce’s can be attached to accelerate the mining speeds. Per Butterfly Labs, it will start shipping the hardware at the end of Apr-2013.

As a comparison, the Bitcoin network computations are currently at about 60,000 GH/s, so a single Bitforce will give you about 0.08% of the total computation speed.
