I think 5000 USD are to much.
Debian owns a beamer, 3 machines, hundres of posters, t-shirts and
whatever else. :-)
This stuff is at credativ office.

1: In my opinion we ned a box to send them around.

2: A roll-up display like this [1] is a usefull thing on boothes like
CeBit or so.
The most of the projects in linux park at CeBit has so one and it
lookes good!

3: A tft display (for smaller booths like CeBit this year) is a
usefull thing.
