Try UBID
http://www.ubid.com/cat/get_cat_page.asp?CatID=0&Pg=0

But be careful as they tend to bid on them themselves in my opinion.

I was interested and made 12 bids on 12 different puters but all the same
make, brand and stuff in them (identical), over about a six month period or
so and ended up getting only one of them and all 12 final bids were within
about $100. That is way to coincidental for me.

but it might give you something to go on. The college could offer them at a
real bargain. Guess you  will have to wait and see.

Good luck
