Thanks for all who responded. I did not really intend for the digression
in this thread. I have got some good help from this list. I hope this
can wind-up this thread (along with the digression which, if necessary,
really needs another thread altogether).
We were able to negotiate with a local IBM authorized dealer to match the
New York prices below - shipping, taxes, and delivery included! This
dealer seemed to be quite eager to work with us as a new client with
potential future business with them. Apparently, nearly 50% of their
business is with educational and government orders. We were even able to
negotiate 8mb memory prices for TP755CE for under $400 which is the best
we have been able to find. Whoever thought can not be be competitive
with nationally known outfits!
So, the waiting is the hardest part now!
