It's the economy, stupid...but that doesn't mean you can't live a little when Uncle Sam hands you (your own) money once you've filed your taxes this year.

It's the economy, stupid...but that doesn't mean you can't live a little when Uncle Sam hands you (your own) money once you've filed your taxes this year.

The average tax refund in 2008 was $2,429, according to the IRS. We here at ZDNet believe the best way to reap personal reward from that refund -- and do your part to kickstart the economy, no less -- is to buy some tech goodies.

With that in mind, our expert product reviews bloggers on ZDNet have compiled our "Tax Refund Special" -- lists of what to do with your tax refund, organized by product category. It's the cream of the gadget crop that we think readers should spend their hard-earned green on. (After all, consumerism helps jump-start the economy!)

Here's our tax time special, served hot n' fresh:

Enjoy!
