Check the IBM Home Stores as they are always clearing out defunkt product
lines, returned orders, or leased units. Interestingly enough slash is
running a brief story about the same question. Finally see
http://ebaystores.com (IBM store) for alternative clearout of IBM equipement.
Asside from IBM, Toshiba's and Dell's seem to get the highest ratings for
used hardware. If you can but an extended warranty if you purchase from a
dealer as it will be well worth in my expereince.
