Buying Buisness Pc's Help?

I need to purchase a bunch of computers to replace a department's old PC's. They need new monitors and everything.

Because space is concern, they want to get small factor ones.

I like to play safe with memory, so I'm thinking 4GB of memory. Hard-drive space doesn't matter.

Processor, I prefer intel, something at least 2.8.

I don't want to spend more than $800 per pc. I'm hoping for something like $750, which includes the monitor and everything. Monitor size doesn't really matter. Nothing smaller than 19"

I can't seem to find the perfect solution, does anyone have any link to some good ideas?

Something like this picture would be perfect (this item wasn't what I wanted in terms of specs though)

I configured this on Dells website (for small to medium size businesses).

it came up as $628.00 for 4GB memory and 22" monitor.

See attached PDF doc. You might be able to get an even better price with quantity purchase by working with one of their reps.
More than possible, that gets you on average an i3 processor and 4GB of RAM.

With a 20" monitor even from Dell

And it is a mini-tower (Not super small, as that will bring the price up some...

Do you have a business relationship with any vendor currently? If not, call around with what you want, your price and tell them you are willing to buy X many PCs for the next X years and see what price break they can give you...
I prefer HP would be good one for business PC and they have very good service/ Sales suport that we really need in business.

Go for a machines with min 3 year 333 Warranty
HP Small  Form Factor PC sould be the good option from Hp for your business need.
