Cheap commercial computers

#1NodforcePosted 6/1/2012 6:04:06 PM
Hey gameFAQers, I haven't been on this board in a while but it looks to be quite the same! (In a good way :) )

I was wondering if I could ask for some help. This isn't technically a gaming question though. I am opening a new restaurant up very soon and I need about 4 computers. The thing is, I have basically no requirements for them besides they be reliable. All they would need to do is run our POS software which is extremely lightweight. What would be the cheapest route? I have been advised to look at auction lots where they give out a bunch of corporate computers for like $50/computer, but I can't seem to find anything like that. I would be comfortable spending sub $200. If anyone can help me I thank you very much in advance!

Have you tried computer shops that sell computers in bulk for $100? Microcenter has them (http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?sortby=pricelow&N=4294967292), but I know that smaller shops do that, too.

Check Craigslist for those types of bulk sales.

Microcenter in bulk is a good idea so I deleted what I had put.

I wouldn't rule out checking places like goodwill for keyboards and mice and monitors.

You can usually find them for 4-3$ for both.
