I picked up a unit from "generation-X" computers.
They are helpful in selling decent systems without
an O/S if you don't want it (i.e., avoiding the
microsoft tax). Basically, they go to the same
chinese factories that produce Sony, Toshiba,
etc, machines and buy them without logos.

I picked up a 17" box with st'a rosa cpu, 2GB core,
120GB drive, spare battery, and shipping for < $3000.
The high-res (1900x1200) display is useful for
graphics processing, you might not need that high-end
of a display.

They got me the machine quickly and it worked the
first time.
