Consider leasing, directly from Apple..they are very flexible with schools

Buy? Ebay comes of the top of my head. There are 'liquidators' on Ebay, try to find one of them, they usually have big apple collections and work something out for pickup or a one shot freight shipment.

I would mention craiglist, but you have to meet each person one by one and see what they offer. I'd stay away from Craiglist for bulk buys.

Google something in the context of "apple computer liquidators", to find a liquidator that can supply you with used equipment in one shot.

Be wary when you buy used. Apple does not provide support very easily for older hardware and authorized resellers/servicers are very costly.

I would definitely also recommend that you consider contacting Apple for one of their many educational lease programs and discounts. You will enjoy it more.
