If you had about $1500-$2000 of FREE money available between now and a year from now. (say it's from your parents, your employer, an envelope found on the street, from God, whatever....)
You also had free electricity and network resources.
Nothing on pre-order, no place in any queue.

What course of action would you take vis-a-vis mining?

Hold off until March... we are entering the beginning days of DIFFIPOCALPYSE!

No... seriously... hold your money.  When everyone gets discouraged with the difficulty, and their fancy 400GH+ miner that they have been using since November is making .05 btc/day (I am thinking Feb./March) and starts dropping out would be best time to jump in.

Alternatively, if the whales start dumping cheap coins... might want to consider bottom feeding.  I haven't had much luck catching the falling knife though... so be warned.

The best advice I can give you is not to take anyones advice on the internet.  Do you own analysis.

I wouldn't.

There is no winning move with regards to buying mining hardware right now.

If I were forced to do something mining related with it, I'd split it across various mining securities.

Need high quality, rack mountable GPU clusters for OpenCL work or password auditing?  http://www.stricture-group.com/

Buy BTC and move it to a cold wallet.

I do not suffer fools gladly... "Captain!  We're surrounded!"
I embrace my inner Kool-Aid.
