    I've just "bought" a new PC using this scheme. Being a higher rate tax payer the advantages are brilliant.

    It seems that it is a little known government scheme. It gives advantages to both the employer and employee, so win, win all round.

    We've recerntly had a round of this at work (Fujitsu). I think the idea is great and a number of my colleagues sat at home all day waiting for thier new boxes.

    It's true though, the more tax you pay the more you save with this scheme. Quite a first really.

    Two reasons why i didn't take them up on it though....

    1) I bought a new, custom built, rig earlier in the year; and
    2) They were all standard off-the-shelf boxes available, no custom builds available.

    But even though I chose not to (sounding all too negative about it all) I would recommend everyone readin this in the UK to look into this scheme if you're thinking about a new box.
