One thing you can look at is debranded systems.  Places like geeks.com will 
occasionally have excess (new or refurbished - read the fine print) units 
from HP, etc. when they change models.

The debranded systems don't come with Windows and can be cheaper than the 
refurb units from the manufacturer.

That's what I did with my current desktop - it was a rev behind, but I dodged 
the Microsoft tax.

Yeah, I'd be interested in looking at that.  I don't know that I'll be able to 
do anything with it right away -- I'm being deployed again in March.
