When times are tough, the tough go hunting for ways to save money, and accommodating vendors offer more ways to help them save. One of the more innovative approaches is a deal from Hewlett-Packard. The company, which now goes under the corporate name HP, is offering 12-month interest-free financing on many of its popular products, including many desktop and laptop computers, workstations, and printers. At the end of the 12-month period, assuming you’ve made all the payments, you pay HP a dollar and the equipment is yours.

From now until April 30, you can finance anywhere from $1,500 to $150,000 worth of equipment under the plan, which is essentially a lease agreement that allows you to spread the cost of your technology investment over a 12-month period. That can help you maintain and upgrade your office technology without laying out a hefty lump sum; at the same time, you can preserve capital that you may need for other uses.

Some HP products, such as printer ink and toner, are not eligible for the 0% rate. The offer also covers only the Smart Buy line of computers and workstations.
