I looked at DUDE's profile...sorry 'bout that...anyway...with all the schools out there, I am sure they all have surplus sales. Check out there websites and put SURPLUS in their search...or contact the "facilities" dept...I did an inventory of 2 labs at my school last summer...we surplused a few computers but also about 40 routers, switches, and another 20+ pieces of legacy networking equipment. But that was just the 2 labs i work in...I have no idea what the rest of the school did.
Hospitals also have surplus dept...
Here is where i go often...for an example:
Retail Store | Finance Division | The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
