    Dell sell cheap Dells

    Or some online retailers resell Dell systems. Dunno if they're new or reconditioned though. You bothered?

    "Dell don't sell in the shops"

    If you are looking for secondhand stuff, with no warranty - then there are stacks of job lots of Dells going on eBay. Type in "Job lot dell"

    What sort of specs are you looking for?

    Also, it may be worth setting up a business account with Dell. If you say you want that amount of PCs, they're usually open to some negotiation or bung in some nice freebies. Feel free to haggle Our account manager is great, we get all our PC hardware from Dell now.

    We have been buying refurbished DELL systems for years. These are sold with the balance of manufacturers warranty. All of these systems have been factory 'refurbished' by DELL, most have been in perfect or near perfect condition upon delivery and came with 30+ months warranty or more.

    I would estimate I have bought 100+ desktops and 200+ DELL Latitude laptops this way, not to mention 3 servers. Out of the 300+ systems I would reckon 2-3 have had slight scratches, certainly no more damage than you get buying new direct from DELL anyway. Stick them in a classroom environment for a week and they will have worse battle scars anyway!

    Suppliers I have used are EuroPC, SterlingXS, MCS, and ITC Sales. EuroPC has been very good at getting us larger batches of equipment. If they have what you want it's next day delivery. With EuroPC, if they don't have what you want they will source what you need, including individual features on servers.

    The best thing of all is dealing with someone who is is keen to help and willing to speak to you

    We've been buying Dell Vostros recently, very cheap and surprisingly good quality.

    You might be able to negotiate a discount on delivery with such a large order.

    We buy pretty much exclusively from Dell now too. I always shop around HP and Fujitsu but our account manager at dell will always beat them and usuually by a considerable margine. They seem to reward loyalty and of course volume purchases. To give you an idea this time last year we bought 57 desktops 2 computer suites. All ultra lowprofile small cases vista capable ie they have a dedicated video card. Spec as follows.

    Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13ghz
    2GB DDR2
    80GB HD
    Radeon 1300 128MB DVI video cards.
    optical mice + the nice dell keyboards.
    DVD-RW (they are media studies suites)
    Windows XPhome license
    17" 1280x1024 screens from dell's pro range not the value ones.
    The 3 Year Warrantly was thrown in and their service through that has been fantastic with the 1 blown Monitor, 2 faulty laptops and a bad DVD drive we've had out of the close to 200 machines we've now bought from them. They were all swapped next day no questions.

    This was our 3rd major order from dell and our account manager got the price down to a touch over 400 a machine and they were delivered the following week.

    Like any of the big suppliers Dell, RM, Fujitsu, HP get in touch with their public sector sales department your Locla authority may already have a rep assigned so might be worth checking. They want to sell machines in volume and they will relish the opertunity to win a school as a cleitn becasue they know we will have a 3-7 year renwal cycle and thats the kinda business that keep them going.
