Roughly: from 2500 bucks max to 1600 bucks max (US$). Right now, a lot of employees are quickly buying a new PC (with all the works) before the new limit takes effect. This results in huge orders for the PC manufacturing companies and - of course - delays.
Why am I telling you this? Because a few of us here at the hotel decided to buy a new PC (laptop in my case) just 3 days before the government announced their news. And our order got caught up in the big pile of orders. So, the PC's were later than expected (over a week).
BUT, they're in! I saw them being delivered this morning. Then why don't I have mine yet? Because the Human Resources guy responsible for the whole deal is not in today, and he needs to print our contracts before we can take our new toys home. ARGH! So close yet so far away.
