    Re: Anyone trying to get rid of school computers?

    Okay just thought i'd update. Ideally we needed the computers ASAP (as ours are dying a slow death) so I thuoght i'd look into First Tech as mentioned by krisd32 above.

    I sent them an e-mail and they actually provided me with what I consider to be an extremely decent offer:

    HP/Compaq Evo
    Pentium 4 1.7 GHz
    512MB RAM
    30GB HDD
    CD Drive
    XP Pro COA License
    Warranty of 12 months
    Keyboard & Mouse

    Cost: £80

    As we are ordering 14, the total cost is £1,120 (ex VAT). Not bad at all in my opinion. If these machines work out, i'll certainly be remembering this company in the future.

    Thanks for all the offers we received on this thread.

    Its all good gear from them. Me and Ric get stuff of them all the time. I also live close enough to be able to go and look exactly what they have in at the time.
    It certainly makes my budget go alot further. My other favorite items of them are HP mono laser printers.

    Hehe, what makes the offer seem especially good is that a couple of years ago I could have gone into PC World and bought one top of the range machine for £1100 (they might even sell some computers for that price now, who knows) ... now i'm getting 14 for a similar total cost. They may not be as high spec'd, but they are certainly good enough for our needs. I certainly wouldn't refuse a computer with that spec for that price at home.
