Here in the US, if you’re a business, you have two days left to buy gear for 2009 and make it deductible. If you ship it, be sure to ship it overnight so it arrives in 2009, just in case. Be sure to ask your tax advisor about “section 179" — how about writing off the entire cost of the equipment, not just a measly 20% deprecation?! Consult your tax advisor here, I am absolutely not giving tax advice, just mentioning the topic for your own investigation.
If you already need some “stuff”, why not check out my gear (wish) lists at B&H for camera gear and computer stuff— no sense buying in January 2010 when you can get a 2009 tax deduction. The lists are at left, under the B&H search box. And don’t forget that OWC has year-end deals too.
Great computer choices include the NEC 25.5" display with calibrator, which has now dropped to a very reasonable $1169, or any Apple Mac Pro. See this list.
