but I will be able to purchase it for a couple Cs when co. gives us new ones next month
How much are you buying it for and how old is it? The reason I ask is because if it is getting near 3-4 y.o. (especially if older than 4), it may not be worth what they are asking. With new PC's getting so inexpensive, they may be the way to go. I buy all our PC's for our users at work for around $500.00. These have Pentium 4 at 2.8 - 3.2 GHz, 512 mb RAM and 40-80 Gb Hard Drives. These comps are from the co. in Roundrock, and, they have been doing free flat panel displays as of late. Just some food for thought.
