Yes, we have had good luck buying on eBay also.  Have bought both new and 
used, Mac & PC, and have not been burnt. 

It's really pretty amazing what you can find, with relatively little 
hassle, if you create customized searches.  I always specify "Buy It Now" 
items, along with a price range and relevant keywords, etc.  That way you 
don't have to hang around waiting for the auction to end...

For what it's worth, I have recently had really good luck buying used 
on ebay. I recently acquired a few Pentium II's for about $50/each. Note 
that these are just
the systems, no monitors or OS. Of course they are used, but for the price 
perfect. And they do work!
