    I've done so many times. But I actually own a for-profit business and actually use the computers as part of the normal process of running the business.

    If you don't own a business or the computer is for personal home use then you can't write it off as a business expense.

    Yes, give it a try if it's Office Equipment and after business hours you might watch movies on it or do recreational stuff.

    YES...if you have a signed invoice stating that it is actually a business computer.

    Business expenses have to be used EXCLUSIVELY for the business.

    If this is your single computer and you use it for business and for personal = No, you are not legally allowed to use it as a business expense.
