I think you're out of luck, Microsoft's monopoly enabled predatory
pricing has driven Linux out of the market.  Microsoft priced XP Home
at $10/machine, and for that price premium, nobody bought the slightly
lower priced Linux versions.  You can still order them from HP and
probably Dell, but otherwise you're paying the Microsoft tax.  I
looked at TigerDirect.com to see if they might have some refurbs
still, but I was unsuccessful.
