    You may get discounts from resellers, depending on their target markets.  Retail outlets may have one-off refurbished Home or SoHo products, but Commercial resellers may have the business lines, and in larger quantities.  

    The most popular lines in both will not have much room to haggle, as they sell in any case.  However, it's worth speaking to an actual sales person in both cases, as they will have more room to manouevre.  You should also identify areas where there are "must-haves" eg a certain graphics option, optical drive type etc, and then let the salesman see what else they can get for you within that remit.  

    Finally, when closing, ask about some upgrades - often, you can get more RAM thrown in for pence, extended warranty, etc...
