Dont forget with Section 179 you are not limited to the full value of the item being depreciated. You can claim Section 179 for the half the amount in one year then claim half the next.
Also, section 179 isnt always a good idea... its designed for businesses who will be seeing their profits DECREASE in the future... if your profit stays the same or increases, section 179 is not recommended... taking normal depreciation is more advantageous
