Someone mentioned Staples

 

I've bought some electronics from Newegg.com with good luck, but never a computer.

 

Which vendors tend to have the best prices for lower end computers?

 

Thanks in advance!

You can always get a refurbed machine (HP,Dell,Lenovo,etc) from Newegg, Amazon, Ebay. They are typically used company machines that are refurbed then sold for a 200 bucks or so. Honestly you can't beat that.

 

Here is an example of one.

Thanks for the replies so far
 
The example computer in  DeimosChaos' post meets my criteria: 
 
4 GB RAM or better
At least 200 GB HDD
DVD RW drive  (want to be able to write to both CDs and DVDs)
Several USB ports
Reasonably high GHz, within the price limitation of 
 
Would you say that example is the best low priced "bang for the buck" refurbished computer on Newegg right now?
 
thanks

Hard to say... there are a ton of refurbished machines on Newegg. Go browse through what they got and see if you find any better deals or ones that you like better. That is one I just pulled quickly, it was near the top.

 

On Newegg's main page, if you hover over "Computer Systems" you will then see a sub category for "Refurbished".
