best is to look in your local newspaper for public auctions of company foreclosures
usually they will sell laptops in numbers you want ... if the company was big enough

I've had good luck with ASUS, Dell, HP, and Toshiba laptops for many years. They all have models that meet your specs and price range. I recommend perusing their websites:
