Last year we bid to Gateway, Dell and GovConnection.  Obviously, we won't be going to Gateway this year but we would like 3 vendors so it will probably be Dell and 2 others which we haven't decided yet.

We just got a price on a Dell E6500 with 2 GB ram, dual core for $ 996.  The desktop price for 26 Optiplex 760s. 2gb of ram, 256 MB video card, 20" wide screen LCD monitor etc was $ 816

Last year Dell got the bid and we have been pretty happy with their delivery and support.  Our rep is Jeff Wells [log in to unmask]

Subject: hardware vendors

We're getting ready to issue an RFP for new PC laptops for all the
teachers.  Here's the list of vendors I buy hardware from all  the time:

GovConnection	Angelo Mullen		[log in to unmask] 
Florida Micro		Evan Predom		[log in to unmask] 
TopFloor		Marcus Szczecinski 	[log in to unmask] 
CDW-G		Dwight Decoskey 	[log in to unmask] 
Dell			Adrian Villalba		[log in to unmask] 

If anyone's aware that any of these contacts is obsolete, or has
suggestions about other vendors they've gotten particularly good deals
from, would you mind sharing that with me?  thanks.
