not affiliated. A good place to get computer equipment is a web-based
company called "onsale.com". It is an internet auction. they buy
surplus and reconditioned computers and high tech stuff. After you
decide between Dec and Sun, you might go to that website and see if you
can get a really good deal there. 

I'm not affiliated with it, but my husband just got a great laser 
printer for half the retail price, so it came to mind. After all, you
work hard for that grant money....
